ON THE GROUND SCOTLAND – CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS

Do you want to develop the audience of your community cinema and raise your profile? Interested in how to find and build relationships with partners that could help take your cinema to the next level?

Join Cinema For All online on Sunday 31 October 11am-1:30pm for our first On the Ground Scotland event, as we explore community cinema collaborations and the creative ways that groups have worked together. You will also gain top tips and inspiration for starting your own creative partnerships, that help one another flourish.

Collaborating with other organisations and community cinemas can be a great way to reach new audiences, raise the profile of your cinema, or even share the workload of a more ambitious idea. But where do you go to find the right group to partner with, and how do you make sure that you both get what you need out of working together?
