BFI Film Funday
Telephone: 020 7928 3232
Each month we’ll showcase: a great animated tale; a classic that every child should enjoy; and an international treat that you might have missed out on.
To round it off, we present our popular centrepiece event the BFI Funday, where we preview upcoming releases or ask a filmmaker or actor to present a true cinematic great, accompanied by a lively workshop of activities.
There really is something for everyone!

It may be worth checking out BFI Film Funday's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact BFI Film Funday before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
