We are very proud to announce that Minicine has been shortlisted in two categories for the 2015 Cinema For All Film Society of the Year Awards. For the second year in row, we have been shortlisted for the Best Film Programming Award and Best Marketing & Publicity Award. Consideration in these categories also makes us eligible for the prestigious Engholm Prize for Film Society of the Year, which is currently held by Dungannon Film Club.
At last year’s awards ceremony we were fortunate enough to walk away with Distinctions in both the Film Programming and Market & Publicity categories and received the Special Mention in the Film Society of the Year Award.
Cinema For All, the trading name of the British Federation of Film Societies, promotes and supports the development of community film exhibition throughout the UK. First formed in 1946, the organisation is more active and involved in community film exhibition than is has ever been, with ever-growing numbers of community cinemas and film societies a testament to that.
The full Film Society of the Year Awards shortlist can be read here. Winners will be announced at the #FSOY15 award ceremony on Saturday 3 October at Sheffield Showroom & Workstation as part of the Cinema For All National Conference. The ceremony is free to attend and tickets are available here. We hope you can come along and show your support for community cinema.
