Please carefully read the Guidance Notes before applying. 

We all know that the business of being a community cinema didn’t stop when cinema doors closed back in March 2020, so the judges are keen to hear more about your community connections during lockdown. Perhaps you carried on with online films screenings? Maybe you dropped off DVDs or groceries door to door? Did you raise money for NHS charities or local causes? Maybe you simply gave your vulnerable audience members a weekly phone call to check they were ok? We want to hear about the stories that show the world what a special group of volunteers community cinema organisers are.

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