BFI Major Programmes: Comedy Genius

New Titles Announced

The BFI's blockbuster season for 2018 is the UK's greatest ever celebration of film and TV comedy – bringing the gift of laughter when we need it most. From October to December 2018 the comedy geniuses of the big and small screen will be making us laugh at BFI Southbank and cinemas across the UK, online on BFI Player and with a wide range of UK partners. 

BFI and FAN are working with today’s most talented practitioners to spotlight the brightest stars of their craft, inviting audiences to discover classic works and rescuing overlooked talents from obscurity. Film Hub Scotland can work with you to bring the laughs to regional audiences - we know that humour is both national and subjective, so all ideas are welcome. 
We can help you bring the laughs to your audiences this Oct-Jan. The ICO's twelve film programme represents comedy at its all-time best; highlighting early film comedy pioneers and innovators and world cinema classics as well as blockbuster talent from the 80s and beyond.

Why not create a season or plan an event at your venue? Here's some inspiration from around the UK.
If you book with the ICO, they can offer you:
  • subsidised MGs and specially reduced terms on certain titles
  • speakers for venues who book more than one title
  • a dedicated freelance marketing expert to support your marketing and audience development

Film Hub Scotland and the BFI can help you to fund special screenings and events at your venue with our Screening Support fund (£150-1,500). It's now open for applications and you can find all information, deadlines and guidance documents here.
The fund will operate on a rolling basis and is open to 3 December 2018, unless funds are exhausted earlier.
