Outdoor screening are becoming more and more popular but with hefty hire prices for equipment and bigger box office splits it can often be a challenge for community cinemas.
Join Cinema For All for free online on Saturday 29 May between 2 – 3:15pm, as we hear from a handful of exhibitors who have created magical experiences for their audiences and taken community cinema outdoors…on a budget!
With inspiration and advice from community cinemas with experience and plenty of opportunity for questions and networking, this event is perfect for groups with ambition to run outdoor screenings. Featuring presentations from Friends of Cotteridge Park, Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema and Inspirate who will cover everything you need to know about taking your screenings outside, from logistics and costs, to audiences.
This workshop will take place on Zoom and will be BSL interpreted and captioned, participants will receive a link in advance of the session. Please note, you do not have to be based in the West Midlands to attend and there is no limit to the number of group members, so please feel free to invite the rest of your team. We look forward to seeing you there!
