In reflection of our 70th anniversary celebrations, the theme of this year’s conference is Community Cinema Heroes – the past, present and future of volunteer-led cinema. Through sessions and workshops we’ll be exploring the importance of individual volunteers, their impact on communities and how we can ensure the future of community cinema by being at the heart of the social and cultural lives of the people they serve.

Remember, you can apply to your local Film Hub for a bursary to help you attend the Community Cinema Conference.

Book now to join us for a brilliant weekend celebrating, championing and supporting community-led cinema!

See you soon!
