SCREENTIME: Covid Safety Measures

In preparing for our upcoming screenings as part of SCREENTIME, the health and safety of our audiences has been at the heart of our planning throughout. Although restrictions surrounding COVID-19 are no longer a legal requirement, BFMAF remains cautious in our efforts to make screenings accessible and safe for all those returning to the cinema in person.In line with these concerns, we ask that everyone joining us for these screenings do their part in creating an environment that is welcoming, safe, and inspiring to all by committing to the following:

  • Wear a mask when indoors, unless sitting down during the screening
  • Be respectful of the boundaries of other guests and staff at all times
  • Observe 1 metre distance from others as much as possible
