Date: 7-9 September 2018

Join Cinema For All in Sheffield from 7-9 September for the UK’s biggest gathering of film societies, community cinemas, village screens and film clubs for a weekend-long celebration of volunteer-led cinema.

This year’s theme is 'Yourself on Screen' – with opportunities to delve into important issues such as representation, community outreach, diverse film programming as well as covering some of the core community cinema topics such as sustainability and marketing.

A full programme will be available soon but expect an entire strand of pre-release films, an eye-opening key note speech, panel sessions led by community cinema organisers themselves, plus specialist workshops led by the Cinema For All team. The highlight of the weekend is the Film Society of the Year Awards and after party. 

“By meeting other film societies we felt part of something much bigger and that our efforts are appreciated and recognised more widely.” – Lost In Film

Average ticket price for the whole weekend is £85 (Cinema For All Member rate) – all lunches, morning refreshments and evening nibbles are included. Discounted tickets are available for students and under 26s and day passes are available on request.

If you are a member of your local Film Hub, you could apply to them for a bursary towards the cost of the conference (details via link below).
