More details of the 2019 programme coming soon!


Join Cinema For All in Sheffield on 20-22 September 2019 for the UK’s biggest gathering of film societies, community cinemas, village screens and film clubs for a weekend-long celebration of volunteer-led cinema!


Expect invaluable masterclasses and workshops, panel discussions, exciting film previews and much more. The conference will take place at The Workstation in Sheffield, with film screenings at Showroom Cinema and The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University.

The highlight of the weekend is  the Film Society of the Year Awards and after party, where we will get together to celebrate the incredible work of community cinemas across the UK (followed by lots of dancing)!



‘By meeting other film societies we felt part of something much bigger and that our efforts are appreciated and recognised more widely.’ – Lost In Film
