Bute Street

manifesto

The main goal of Bute Street Festival is to promote independent film and visual and digital art, creating new audiences in an area and demographic which for a long time has been neglected in this regard. Bute Street Festival is based in Luton, a region which for a long time has been neglected in this regard. Meaning that the commercial potential in this area is completely untapped. In a town that has recently received an inward investment of £1.5 billion and over £3.8 million in direct arts funding, the local arts market place is young, healthy and unsaturated. Bute Street Festival stands as the fastest growing and most recognisable arts brand in the Bedfordshire area.

Bute Street Festival’s commercial reach is not just local as our content throughout the year is now shown across 12 Cineworld Cinema sites, up from one in 2018. Cineworld enjoyed 275 million customers across their combined UK sites in 2019.  Our programming is also supported by BFI Network an affiliate of the British Film Institute, the University of Bedfordshire as well as The Culture Trust Luton.

Benefits of Supporting Bute Street Festival:

- An increased brand awareness and presence amongst a motivated customer base.
- Thousands of pounds worth of brand marketing through our existing partners.*
- An association with an established, growing and well-respected brand.
- Free access to our events.*
- Exclusive discounts on merchandise.
