FAN are supporting BFI Musicals this autumn. This is a nationwide cinema season celebrating the spectacle and craft of Musicals on film. This major season is led by BFI, Independent Cinema Office and Film Audience Network (FAN).
FAN member cinemas can access screening support to present films, mini seasons or events as part of the season. With screening support, you can get help to fund your own independent programming and events. You can also apply for support to do wrap around activity related to the seasons core titles. Get in touch with your regional hub to find out more.
If you would like to include Captioned Subtitles on your screenings, Sweet Charity is bookable from the ICO touring programme. Tommy and Singin’ in the Rain is available from the BFI. Remember to specify Captioned Subtitled when booking.
If you would like to run a Dementia-Friendly screening, take a look at our downloads section. Screenings are adapted to make the environment more suitable for people living with dementia. You can find more about running dementia-friendly screenings here. Dementia-friendly screenings are also sometimes called Relaxed Screenings, though these can also be suitable for people with multi sensory sensitivities or different conditions such as autism or learning disabilities.
If you’re interested in running a relaxed screening, find out more in our quick tips for running relaxed screenings. You may also find some transferable advice in our autism-friendly screenings guide, though bear in mind much of this advice is specific to people living with autism, not necessarily those who are Learning Disabled. Ideally, consult with Learning Disabled groups in your area for advice and expertise.
