About this space

A well-proportioned screening room with a stage, NFT2 at the BFI Southbank is ideal for panel discussions, industry events or private screenings and is one of our most popular corporate hire venues.

The large screen creates a vibrant and dynamic backdrop and can support slick presentations to enhance the impact of your event.

All AV within NFT2 is included as part of your hire fee, as is an in-house Technician and an Event Coordinator to ensure your event runs smoothly.

The high service standards of our professional and dedicated events crew are part of the reason why clients repeatedly rebook our spaces to host their most high profile events - no matter what the format, we will go the extra mile to help you stage a successful and memorable event.

Over the years, we have welcomed leading corporate, tech, automotive and entertainment brands who consider the BFI Southbank to have the perfect atmospheric setting to stage a unique event. Our landmark venue has played host to come of the most memorable moments in the UK's cinematic history and your event can capitalise on that incredible heritage.

When you hire our venue, you will enjoy immense flexibility with branding the space. Your creativity is limited only by your imagination - visually transform the physical space to the full extent possible using brand-coordinated lighting effects, poster and digital displays, wraps and vinyling, personalised entrances and a red carpet welcome – you can discuss what branding options are allowed on site.

Events at NFT2 can be booked with other inspirational social spaces within the BFI Southbank such as the Blue Room or the Riverfront restaurant and Balcony Bar, which provide the perfect venues for pre- or post-event networking.

All venues at the BFI Southbank enjoy easy access to major public transport links via Waterloo Station.
