Sustain Lift Autumn 2020 Applications now open

  • Want to re-evaluate after lockdown?
  • Looking to develop skills or polish existing ones?
  • Want to connect more as a team and start working towards your next project?

As part of the Cinema For All LIFT package helping community cinemas return to screening films after lockdown, we are running another round of our BFI funded coaching programme, Sustain!

This autumn we have places on all three strands of Sustain available. Find out more about each below:

Sustain Shine – for existing community cinemas to reflect on what they have achieved and where they want to go next. This programme will follow our previous and popular Sustain format, providing groups with three coaching sessions and a £200 bursary to build on and explore the sustainability of their community cinema.

Sustain Develop – a new programme for community cinemas with a clear idea of their next stage of development with a specific project. The programme will consist of three bespoke coaching sessions tailored to your group, along with a £600 bursary to help realise, plan and achieve your community cinema’s next ambition.

Sustain Collaborate – This programme will support groups with ideas for an interesting collaboration with other community cinemas. It provides a bursary of £1000 to help cover the costs of making your in person or online collaborative project happen.

The deadline for all applications is 15 October 2020. If you have any questions about any of the coaching programmes, or application process please email Abi or Ellie at abi@cinemaforall.org.uk or ellie@cinemaforall.org.uk.

We look forward to hearing from you!
