About the Film Audience Network
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 Film Hub Lead Organisations (FHLO) providing a comprehensive geographic reach across the UK with the aim of increasing the breadth and depth of film available to audiences.
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.

Underwire festival, the UK’s largest film festival celebrating female talent from various practices is currently taking place, screening short films and special events at various venues across London and we are thrilled to see so many Film London funded shorts and alumnae amongst the programme.
Aspiring Icelandic musicians, a game show cheater and a suave assassin come to London this month. Read all about the productions filming in the capital as well as what will be on our screens throughout September.
