Available now*!

BOOK NOW

Vote 100: Born a Rebel – a 15 minute short film made by Cinema For All together with the YorkshireNorth East and North West Film Archives – is now available to book, exclusively for Cinema For All Members and Associates.

WATCH THE TRAILER 

The film is an exploration of women in protest across the North of England and marks 100 years since the start of women’s suffrage in the UK. The film is supported by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme. The film scored a spectacular 96% with audiences when premiered at the Cinema For All Community Cinema Conference in September.

‘A tear in my eye while watching this film. The passion for this project really shines through. I can’t wait to see it again’ – Leigh Film Society

Showing women’s lives from the suffragettes to the miner’s strikes, and much more, the film’s title is inspired by the first person we encounter in the film – suffragette Elizabeth Dean who, celebrating her 100th birthday, defiantly tells the camera:

‘Between you and I, I must have been born a rebel!’

Community Cinemas Collaborate in West Yorkshire

Three community cinemas collaborate to bring I Daniel Blake to a wider audience in Huddersfield

 Electric Theatre Cinema, Dolly Shot Pop Up Picture House and The Red and Green Club combined forces to screen I Daniel Blake and raised over £1000 for Huddersfield’s Welcome Centre this January. The three local community cinemas screened Ken Loach’s BAFTA nominated film the weekend starting the 6th January for three consecutive nights, offering pay what you can afford tickets and collecting money at the same time.

“We got the idea at this year’s Cinema For All Conference”, explains Zana Wood Co director at the Electric Theatre Cinema. “There was a lot of talk about championing each other as small independent film societies and I, Daniel Blake seemed the obvious choice of film for a collaborative project. We were thrilled when Dolly Shot Pop Up Picture House and The Red and Green Club agreed to join us. Caroline from Dolly Shot, a pop up cinema, had the great idea of screening on the Friday night in Huddersfield Methodist Mission and to raise funds and awareness for the Welcome Centre. We are thrilled that all three of us could contribute to such a great cause.”

Caroline from Dolly Shot and Suzi Tibbetts from Electric Theatre took the money to the Welcome Centre who were astounded and grateful for such a huge and unexpected donation. Emma Greenough, the marketing and publicity worker from the Welcome Centre thanked all three cinemas for hosting the events and also for their wonderful donations and support.

“But that is not all,” continued Zana, “Due to the success of the film and having to turn people away we have decided to screen it again in Marsden on the 4th February at the Bandrooms. The film starts at 7.30, and as before tickets are pay what you can afford, so there is still an opportunity for people to see this great film and for us to raise even more money for the Welcome Centre.

Zana added “It is a great credit to film societies and community cinemas around the country, with the valued support of Cinema for All, that allows us to champion each other in this way to bring independent cinema to the nation and we look forward to more collaborations in the future.”
