'One of my favourite moments of community cinema was when I attended an immersive screening of cult favourite, The Craft, organised by Girl Gang Sheffield. The ambitious, large-scale event, held at The Moor Theatre Delicatessen, showed the true power of community cinema. Women and girls of all ages, some attending on their own, were afforded the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy each other’s company in a safe, creative haven. Local business women were given a platform to showcase their talents and network with other like-minded individuals. The atmosphere was electric, which added to the ambience of a wicked (pardon the pun) event.'
