Applications for Sustain Fresh Start will open in November.

Designed to support new groups through their test phase, Launchpad provides intensive coaching, as well as bursaries to help you put on your first two test screenings in your community (£150 for each screening). We’ll be opening applications for the October semester, Launchpad Back to School, in September 2018.

Aimed at existing groups that might be in need of some extra support, Sustain is designed to help you identify and improve on areas of your operation through coaching, programme support and access to a one-off £200 bursary. Applications for the summer semester, Sustain Summer Camp, open May 2018 for sessions to begin from June 2018. Can’t make the summer semester? Don’t worry! We’ll be opening applications for the winter semester, Sustain Fresh Start, in December 2018 for sessions to begin in January 2019.

If you are serious about developing your brand new community cinema, or getting that extra advice and support to boost your existing activity, apply now to receive intensive one-to-one coaching form the Cinema For All team. Previous graduates of Launchpad and Sustain include current Film Society of the Year Leigh Film Society and Best New Society The Picturehouse, Ballyclare.

Honestly, the training has allowed us to develop the cinema project at a more rapid pace than we expected. It has delivered training specific to our needs and the team have been there to answer all the silly questions we have had. Invaluable, is what I would call the training’
