Now, we’re looking to expand our pool of freelancer marketers, and are inviting talented, motivated marketers or promoters to a free workshop day, providing specialist training in film marketing. It’s a great chance to find out more about BFI FAN, network with other freelancers and cinemas, and find out about freelance opportunities in film exhibition all over the UK.

Working with cinemas on incredible films like A Fantastic Woman, God’s Own Country and Mustang, we’ve organised panel discussions and parties – we’ve created GIFs, zines, beermats and badges – we’ve worked with local press and online bloggers – we’ve flyered, flash-danced and Facebooked – to ensure that anyone, no matter where they live in the UK, find out about great independent films screening near them.
We especially welcome applications from people from BAME backgrounds as they are underrepresented in the industry.
