The first leg of Cinema For All South West Group’s Spring Viewing attracted over seventy organisers from twenty South West Community Cinemas and Film Societies. The hosts, Shipham Community Cinema provided their usual welcoming atmosphere in the Village Hall with good food, great cakes and an intriguing film quiz.
The selection of six new digital releases, shown in the Main Hall and the George Thiery Room, didn’t disappoint either, with some of the highest reactions recorded at recent SW Viewings. The line-up included some obvious choices for next season like the multiple Oscar winning Green Book but also less well-known titles such as The Guilty from Denmark and an up-lifting Swiss comedy drama, The Divine Order as well as Cannes Palme d’Or winner Shoplifters, all of which may find their way into community cinema programmes.
There was also a fitting tribute to the legendary French director Agnès Varda who died last month at the age of 91. The full results will be available after the second leg in Cornwall but five of the six titles scored over 86% and the top title a record 95%. There were also many opportunities to network and enjoy the company!
The same six titles, which were so well-received at Shipham, are to be screened at Launceston after Easter on Sunday 28 April.
This will be the seventh event organized by the SW Group in the west of the region to allow organisers of venues in Cornwall and east of the Tamar to preview new titles and meet other enthusiasts.
This will be their third time at Launceston Town Hall and they are pleased to be collaborating once again with Carn to Cove and hope that many C Fylm organisers will join Cinema for All members for the event.
The event is also sponsored by Cinema for All’s On the Ground project.
Bookings must be received by Monday 22 April. Please send your application form to:
