Rural Cinema Conference

The BFI and Creative England are holding the first UK conference dedicated to rural cinema.


With more initiatives targeting rural audiences now than ever before and the Rural Cinema Pilot Scheme in its final year, BFI and Creative England believe that now is the ideal time to bring together key participants to discuss this important but sometimes undervalued area of the film industry.

The Rural Cinema Conference aims to explore and develop ideas and strategies on rural cinema in order that practitioners, funders and commercial organisations can optimise their involvement in this arena.

The agenda will include panel discussions on Growing Audiences in Rural Communities, New Models for Rural Cinema, Rural Distribution, Funding and Sustainability and the Future of Rural Cinema.

Speakers will include representatives from Rose Regeneration, Rural Cinema Pilots, Digital Funding Partnership, Regional Screen Scotland, Dogwoof, Curzon, City Screen, BFI and Creative England. Further speakers will be confirmed soon.

The Rural Cinema Conference takes place on Tuesday 18 September at the Arts Picturehouse Cambridge. The event is aimed at rural film exhibitors and we have a limited number of places left. If you would like to attend the conference please email by Wednesday 22 August.
