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. 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.
