Specialised Advice
As well as all the information you need to know about licencing we can help with programming, sourcing films, event cinema, equipment, marketing and anything else community cinema related!

Our Distribution Officer Woody can offer more focussed advice on sourcing film licences and creating a diverse programme for your audiences. Holly, our Technical Advice and Equipment Coordinator can help you with sourcing equipment, equipment hire, equipment purchase, the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema Equipment Fund and any other technical issues you may be having.

We’d also love to offer assistance and advice if you need help marketing your screenings and reaching new audiences. If you need some inspiration our Marketing and Events Coordinator Abi can point you in the right direction or provide an example of what you could be doing.

Our advice is constantly helping community cinemas across the UK show films and develop what they do. Some memorable examples from the past year include helping Perth Film Society get the rights for the Scottish premiere of Two Lives, helping Rainbow Biz in Wales with their projector and screen purchase and offering Films At Shadforth from County Durham extended support with getting people to their screenings.

If you’d like to get some advice or talk to us you can contact us in the office either by email info@cinemaforall.org.uk or by phone 0114 2210314.
