In continuing their five-year plan to improve public film policy, dubbed Film Forever, the British Film Institute has appointed eight new lead partners to help bring diverse and exciting films and events to audiences across the U.K.

Working with BFI's Film Audience Network, the eight appointed film hubs will collaborate at the grassroots level to bring more film, education, community, exhibition, archive and events experts together to grow audiences for specialized British cinema. The organizations leading the film hubs are: Broadway Nottingham and Cambridge Film Trust; Chapter, Cardiff; Cornerhouse, Manchester; Film London; QFT (Queen's Film Theatre), Belfast; Regional Screen Scotland; the University of Brighton; and Watershed, Bristol. The BFI will unveil more partners in the coming months.

These organizations will collectively receive BFI lottery funding of up to 7.5m pounds over four years (2013-17). Hub activity will be tailored to local audiences and geography to engage the next generation of film fans. Visit BFI for more info.
