A further 22 UK projects are to receive funding through the BFI’s Transition Fund for Audience Development, including the Independent Cinema Office, Power to the Pixel cross media forum and youg film-makers network Cineclub.
The Transition Fund for Audience Development was set up by the BFI to support the industry in the wake of significant cuts to the UK film landscape announced by the government last year.
