COVID recovery programme for film festivals and independent cinema now open for applications



Date Posted: January 7, 2022

The Executive and the Minister for Communities, Deirdre Hargey MLA, have provided COVID recovery funding for a range of not-for-profit organisations.

Northern Ireland Screen will deliver the ‘COVID Recovery Programme for Film Exhibition and Independent Cinema’ with the aim to reduce or remove operating deficits in eligible organisations which have arisen in the 2021/22 financial year because of the COVID pandemic.

The ‘COVID Recovery Programme for Film Exhibition and Independent Cinema’ will support eligible organisations which have been negatively affected by the pandemic in the financial year 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022; and which have a financial operating deficit during that period which is attributable to COVID.

Applications are now open and full details can be found in the funding section of our website.

Deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 28th January 2022.

NICVA is holding two online information sessions on the Covid Recovery Programme, the first one is Monday 10 January at 2pm and the second one is Wednesday 12 January at 12noon. The content is the same for both so you only need to attend one. For more information and to register your attendance please click here.
