Audience Development Programme


The Audience Development Programme provides Film Hub Scotland members with the opportunity to find support for projects that grow audiences and increase engagement with a diverse range of cinema.

This support is available for projects that commence before September 2016. Medium and longer-term projects are eligible and encouraged. If your proposed project will take place outwith these dates please get in touch to discuss available options.

Two types of project will be supported:

  • Under £2,000 for community, volunteer and/or small-scale exhibitors (N.B. This replaces the Micro-funding for Community Cinemas scheme)
  • £2,000 - £10,000 for mid/large-scale exhibitors (if your project requires more than £10,000 please speak to Film Hub Scotland first before applying)
There are two application rounds for this programme:

Round one application deadline is Monday 14 December 2015 (9.00am)
Round two application deadline is Monday 15 February 2016 (9.00am)

Within one week of submission you will receive notification of whether your project is eligible, and within one week of the assessment meeting you will be informed whether your proposal has been successful.

To apply please read the Guidelines and then submit a Proposal and Budget (using the below templates).
