Supporting Independent Cinemas

Today the Culture Secretary has announced £16 million of grants for independent cinemas across England, helping to protect jobs across the industry and the whole of the nation.

  • The magic of film is an important part of the festive period. It’s important to help protect our independent cinemas so they’re around for many Christmases to come and protect the jobs and livelihoods they support. 
     
  • These grants will help than 200 independent cinemas across England – funded through our £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. Hundreds of cinemas have already received funding, allocated by the British Film Institute (BFI), with another £14 million in grants becoming available in the new year as part of the second round of the Culture Recovery Fund. 
     
  • Alongside the extension of the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme, this funding will ensure the UK will continue to produce even more great content as the cinema industry recovers, keeping Britain at the forefront of the creative industries as we build back better.
