The British Film Institute has announced that the second round of the Culture Recovery Fund for Independent Cinemas in England is now open to applications. An additional £14 million has been made available for this funding round.
The Fund aims to support independent cinemas whose businesses have been interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, as they transition back to a viable and sustainable operating model during April-June 2021. The Fund will provide Business Sustainability Grants of between £10,000 and £200,000 per cinema site for profit and not-for-profit organisations.
This round is open to new applicants as well as those that received a grant in the first round and will cover a range of operating costs.
The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 1st February 2021.
