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.
