Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a live pitch during the conference on 2 December 2014, and up to three projects will be awarded investment to develop audiences for specialised and independent British film across the geographical reach of the three Hubs.
This Way Up is committed to supporting new models of exhibition and cultivating collaboration across regional boundaries; therefore all activities must be delivered in partnership with an organisation in each Hub region. We are looking to support projects that identify and focus on audiences and are keen to see activity which specifically engages underserved, underrepresented groups or events that take place in areas of low film provision. The Exhibition Innovation Fund will champion new initiatives that have a clear sustainable strategy outside of the lifetime of the investment.
The deadline for applications to the Exhibition Innovation Fund is Friday 14 November. For more information and to apply please visit the This Way Up website.
