New Release Strategy


New Release Strategy

As you will know, FHNI have supported some members in taking part in the New Release Strategy delivered nationally by the Film Audience Network.

The next two BFI FAN New Release Strategy films are God's Own Country (Picturehouse, 1st September) and Daphne (Altitude, 29th September).

This year, the New Release Strategy will focus on films that appeal to young audiences (age 16-30). Both of these British independent films have been chosen with 16-30 audiences in mind. There are already a number of useful resources below to help support your screenings of God's Own Country with more to follow for Daphne in September.

God's Own Country

Captivating and broodingly beautiful, God's Own Country is the award winning debut feature from writer/director Francis Lee. Bracingly open hearted, this is a thrillingly romantic story set in the heart of rural Yorkshire.
