LATEST UPDATE: Filmbankmedia can now licence films for drive-ins**, and receive applications for outdoor and indoor screenings in England and Northern Ireland. We are awaiting confirmation for Scotland and Wales.

Please ensure that your event is carried out in accordance with all applicable and up to date Government regulations and guidelines. You may wish to refer to the UK Cinema Association for further guidelines.

Extra staff have joined our team to help but please bear with us while we are working as quickly as we can. Allow up to 10 working days for your application(s) to be processed.

Thank you so much for your patience and support.

The legal bit -

Under UK copyright law, screenings films to audiences outside of the cinema or home for entertainment purposes requires a licence from the copyright owner or their representatives (in this case, Filmbankmedia) before doing so. However, this is not inclusive of themed activities which are directly linked to the films (e.g. the use of characters, scene re-enactment, live music performances and any other activities using elements from the film). For more information please contact us before you book your film.
