75th Anniversary Events



Join Cinema For All at special events to celebrate our 75th anniversary


We’re thrilled to invite you to a very special series of events in celebration of our milestone birthday. Some of these will be part of the Community Cinema Conference 2021, while others will be hosted on our website in the run-up to the conference.


At the Conference:


Dr. Matthew Jones from De Montfort University will present a pocket history of the film society and community cinema movement, featuring materials from the Cinema For All archives and oral histories from community cinema organisers, past and present.


During the Film Society of the Year Awards Ceremony, we will take a special moment to recognise and reward some of the longest-running film societies and community cinemas in the UK.


Thoughout the Conference weekend, we will be sharing very special recorded messages from members, friends, and celebrity well-wishers.




In the run-up to the Conference, we will make a number of very special, exclusive pieces of video content available to view online. Watch this space for further details and exciting announcements.


To kick things off, we’re pleased to share¬†this heartwarming video from a good friend and supporter of Cinema For All, filmmaker, critic, and programmer Mark Cousins.


Join the conversation on social media using #CinemaForAll75
