Want to ‘grow your own cinema’ at a venue in your local area? It’s easier than you might think and could make a real difference to your community.
The Grow Your Own Cinema project worked with 20 voluntary arts groups across Scotland during 2016, delivered by Project Officer Morvern Cunningham, who supported groups in hosting initial film screenings in their local communities.
Grow Your Own Cinema was delivered in partnership with Cinema For All and Voluntary Arts Scotland and funded through Creative Scotland’s Screen Skills Fund.
The resources which came out of the project are now available for everyone to use. Thanks to Morvern, Cinema for All and Voluntary Arts Scotland. Click here for the Info Pack.
