Caring Times, November 2017

Cinemas across the UK recognised World Alzheimer’s Month in September with a series of dementia-friendly film events.

The BFI Film Audience Network and venue partners have made film accessible throughout September and beyond, for audiences living with dementia. Regular relaxed screenings, full of live entertainment, offer safe and welcoming experiences.

The film screenings are developed by venues and supported by the eight BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) Hubs across the UK and National Lottery funding, who provide dementia-friendly guidance, training and support to cinema operators.
