Over the past year, a collaboration between Voluntary Arts Scotland and Cinema For All has worked with over 20 communities around the country that were selected on the basis of how accessible mainstream cinema was for local people. The idea being that if local people, for whatever reason, can’t get to the cinema, then perhaps the cinema should come to them. Small amounts of training and equipment have resulted in 20 community cinemas being established. And all the lessons learned have now been published in a simple how-to guide
Grow Your Own Cinema project is at an end. You can now watch this lovely video featuring WHALE Arts Community Cinema, Kelty Community Cinema and Letham Lights, talking about their involvement in the project, and giving advice to those interested in starting their own community cinemas!
