ON THE GROUND COMMUNITY CINEMA DAY

LISKERRETT COMMUNITY CENTRE, LISKEARD
SATURDAY 26 JANUARY, 10–4PM

At Cinema For All, we understand the challenges of setting up and maintaining a sustainable community cinema, as well as the benefit they provide to local communities. Yet, running a community cinema can equip you with skills and experience that can assist other groups!

That is why with On the Ground, we want to get community cinemas together – to share their ideas with one another and benefit from each other’s knowledge.

Our day-long event will encourage this with:

  • Panel discussions featuring local community cinemas sharing their stories
  • Two interactive training sessions: Marketing and Publicity and Attracting and Maintaining Volunteers for Your Community Cinema
  • Networking opportunities, so that you can get to know other groups in your region

There will also be chance to learn about how to become an On the Ground Champion, our regional support scheme which pairs groups looking for assistance with those willing to help and host them at one of their screenings.

So, whether you are a new group looking to start screening films in your community, an existing group in search of some additional support, or an experienced group keen to share your stories and advice to help others, we have something for everyone at this event!

To register for your free ticket visit Eventbrite here. Please note, numbers are limited so reserve your tickets early to avoid disappointment! Please let us know if you have any access requirements in advance.

CINEMA FOR ALL SOUTH WEST VIEWING SESSIONS 2018

CINEMA FOR ALL SOUTH WEST VIEWING SESSIONS 2018

Oscar nominees, BAFTA winners and festival favourites head the line-up for Cinema For All South West Group’s double-header Spring Viewing Sessions! New releases on DVD and Blu-ray are to be screened at two venues in the east and west of the South West region in March and April.

The selection of the five features to be screened at both venues includes a new release from the Cinema For All Booking Scheme  – the Oscar nominated and first oil-painted animated feature, Loving Vincent.  Also headlining is the much acclaimed Call Me By Your Name, which won veteran James Ivory a BAFTA for the Best Adapted Screenplay and is also nominated at the Oscars.

Other festival favourites in the line-up include the Israeli French film In Between, about three Palestinian women sharing a flat in Tel Aviv, the Indian Hotel Salvation, a subtle family comedy-drama, and the documentary, The Prince of Nothingwood, which follows the eccentric Afghan film-maker Salim Shaheen as he embarks on his 111th feature film.

Two very different films provide the sixth title at the two venues. The South Petherton audience will have the opportunity to see last year’s surprise hit and award winner, Get Out, whilst, for the Liskeard event, the local Societies have opted for yet another Oscar prospect The Florida Project, another recent addition to the Booking Scheme.

Altogether, a great line-up of previews for Cinema For All and C Fylm organisers throughout the South West.

The two venues and dates are:
Sunday 18 March – The David Hall, South Petherton, Somerset

Cinema For All South West return to the David and Blake Halls for the fourth time as guests of Petherton Picture Show in the South Somerset town close to the A303, east of Taunton.

Saturday 14 April – Liskerrett Community Centre. Liskeard, Cornwall
Almost four weeks later, our hosts are Liskerrett Community Cinema situated near the centre of Liskeard on the A38.  The centre is one of Carn to Cove’s venues and the South West Group are pleased to be collaborating once again with Claire Marshall and her team from Cornwall’s performing arts scheme who are the organisers of the C Fylm network of 32 film clubs in the county

Any member of community cinema/film society organising committee, signed up with Cinema For All, is welcome to come along to either event – or both!  Please send off the relevant application form to Andy Hastie (andyhastie@yahoo.co.uk) for South Petherton by 12  March and for Liskeard, Claire Marshall (claire@actcornwall.org.uk) by 9 April.  The application forms, directions to the venues and trailers for all the selected titles are available on the Cinema For All South West website http://cinemaforallsw.org/
