Europa Cinemas' Best Entrepreneur 2008
We support member groups with
- film programming advice
- information on technical requirements on 35mm, D-CINEMA and DVD exhibition formats
- delivery of promotional/ support material so groups can actively promote their film programmes locally
- developing and touring original film programmes
- promoting high quality programming, presentation and technical standards for film exhibition
Our members can be professional arts centres or voluntary film societies and they exist in many different types of venues, both big and small, throughout the country. Our success relies on developing and maintaining partnerships with a variety of local organisations so as to facilitate and increase access to art house and cultural film exhibition.
These partnerships are often unique to the individual area's requirements and circumstances. We are continuing to seek new opportunities to expand the provision of cultural cinema regionally.
