Family Film Resource

© Small World Cinema

Film Hub London and Film Hub Scotland have teamed up to create a list of engaging family films and where you can find the rights to them.

The BFI’s Screen Culture 2033 Strategy has shifted the priority audience age from a focus on 16-30 year olds to a focus on under 25 year olds which therefore now includes families! The lack of independent films for families in UK distribution means that families are used to digesting mainly what Hollywood has to offer and in uncertain times, this provides a very welcome box office income for exhibitors.

About the Resource:
We believe, diversifying taste in your youngest audience members will reap benefits further down the line when they return to you as independent young people! However, we realise that programming for families beyond the mainstream can be time consuming when it comes to appropriate and relevant title selection and then of course, sourcing the rights.

The film list also accompanies the Family Programming Beyond the Mainstream resource previously created by Film London which highlights additional places, festivals and organisations that family programmers most rely on.

This is a living resource, so will continue to be updated. Please do get in touch with Film Hub London if there are titles you would like to be added or if you have more up to date licensing information:
