Best Film Programme

Please carefully read the Guidance Notes before applying. 

The judges will be looking to see which films you managed to screen to your audience during lockdown, as well as what digital format you used to reach wide and diverse audiences. This award assumes you screened films primarily online during the judging period (1 June 2020- 31 May 2021), however, if you legally and safely screened films when you were allowed to do so (ie. Late Summer/ early Autumn 2020), please tell us about those screenings too.

The judges will also be looking for a programming style that shows intelligence, freshness and originality as well as a deep understanding of your community. The judges will also want to know how you measured the success of your choices, why you have chosen your films, and how your audience responded. Don’t forget to include links to any digital marketing or provide examples audience feedback.

Send your completed application form to by 31 July 2021. Good luck!
