Cinema For All’s Filmbank Audience Award 2014: We Need Your Help

Good afternoon everyone,

We need your help. The Cinema For All (formerly British Federation of Film Societies) Film Society of the Year Awards 2014 are fast approaching and you could help us win £1,000.

2014 has been a great year so far, with higher audience numbers and films proving more and more popular with those attending film nights, and we genuinely feel that we are moving from strength to strength, therefore we’re planning to put ourselves forward for several awards including the prestigious Engholm Prize for Film Society of the Year Award.

There’s one award that we’d like to go for but to do so we need your help. What do you have to do? It’s actually quite simple and harmless really, and we promise it won’t take up too much of your time either. All you have to do is tell the lovely folk at Cinema For All, in no more than 100 words, why you would recommend Minicine to your friends and family.

That’s it!

The Filmbank sponsored Audience Award provides £1,000 to its recipients for their activities and events. We don’t currently receive any formal funding, Minicine was designed to be self-sufficient – paying for screening licenses through ticket sales and any additional costs being paid for by any small profit we may make from our film nights.

But as our goals and aspirations for what we hope to achieve with Minicine continue to grow so does the need for funding. We’ve long prided ourselves on doing what we do though our own hardwork – keeping things DIY and independent – but with £1,000 we would hope to be able to begin repairing or replacing existing equipment, purchasing new equipment, holding screenings in venues not previously accessible for us, and ultimately providing all of you with an even better experience than the already enjoyable and welcoming one we hope we’re giving you now. Woody may even realise his dream of screening a film on the side of a cow.

The deadline for entries is August 8th 2014, which is only 3 short weeks away, so please get in touch with Cinema For All as soon as you can. Again, simply email and in no more than 100 words state why you would recommend Minicine to your friends and family.

The winners of all Film Society of the Year awards will be announced at the Cinema For All National Conference, which takes place September 27 at The Showroom Cinema in Sheffield.

Thank you for your time and, as always, thank for all your support.
