Filmbank Waives Deposits for New Members

Cinema For All is delighted to announce a huge new offer for our Membership. Major non-theatrical distributors Filmbank will support new members of Cinema For All by waiving the deposit requirement when opening a new Filmbank account. This means that any new group that wishes to start screening films in their community will not have to pay £150 to open their Filmbank account, as long as they have joined Cinema For All as a Member or Associate. With first year membership of Cinema For All costing just £47.50, new groups will save over £100, in addition to be able to access the full range of our member benefits.

Majella Griffin, General Manager of Filmbank Distribution comments: “We are committed to ensuring the widest selection of movies reach the widest audience possible. It is with this in mind that we have introduced this initiative. It is now very simple to open an account and book your films.” 

“We operate an easy-to-use 24/7 online booking service to appeal to Cinema For All members and our bookings team are delighted to help and offer advice during office hours.” (Monday – Friday, 9am – 6pm)
