Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Awards For All, West Side Cinema will be running a YOUNG FILM PROGRAMMERS project, engaging young people aged 15 – 24 in a training programme. This will cover many aspects of programming a community cinema and one-off film events including:

  • sourcing films
  • film and event programming
  • technical presentation
  • marketing and social media

The project will culminate with the Young Programmers having a budget to run their own film event, whilst there will be further opportunity to engage with community cinemas across the county. Participants will also have a free pass to the FILM FOCUS FESTIVAL, so say hello if you see one of the team at an event!
