Exhibition Innovation Fund

The 2014 Exhibition Innovation Fund is now closed and will reopen at THIS WAY UP 15.

The fund was open to members from Film Hubs North, North West Central and Scotland. Projects were awarded funding to build and develop audiences for specialised films across the geographic reach of Film Hubs North, North West and Scotland. Projects were presented in front of a panel of industry experts and peers at the December event, with decisions being announced at the end of the conference.

2015 Exhibition Innovation Fund awardees
£50,000 was awarded to two projects: Move It, led by Animate Projects and the Centre for the Moving Image, and Edinburgh and AV Festival’s major site-specific installation DS30 by Test Dept.

About the Exhibition Innovation Fund
The aim of the Exhibition Innovation Fund is to support projects, ideas, pilots and initiatives that build and develop audiences for these films. 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
