About Us

As part of the BFI's Film Audience Network and funded by BFI and Screen Scotland, we are one of eight Hubs set up across the UK to extend film choice, increase and broaden film audiences, and enhance opportunities for audiences to engage with and learn about film.

We support a network of like-minded film exhibitors – from film societies to multiplexes – to work together to better serve Scotland's diverse population. We provide Hub members with a range of funding opportunities, screening programmes, training, networking events and audience research, helping Scotland's exhibitors become truly inclusive, reaching as many new and existing audiences as possible. Funding from the UK National Lottery enables BFI FAN to continue its broad range of activity to encourage greater engagement with independent and British film across the UK.

The Film Audience Network (FAN) was set up in 2012, using funds from the National Lottery to support a stronger and more connected approach to growing audiences for British and international film on the big screen.

FAN is made up of eight regional and national Hub Lead Organisations (HLO) providing a comprehensive geographic reach across the UK with the aim of increasing the breadth and depth of film available to audiences. The network develops and funds audience-facing projects at a local level. 

FAN is central to the BFI’s commitment in BFI2022 , its current five year plan, to giving everyone, everywhere in the UK the opportunity to enjoy and learn from the richest and most diverse range of great British and international filmmaking, past, present and future.

Film Hub Scotland is led by Glasgow Film, funded by BFI and Screen Scotland.
