Open Cinema enables any community have a cinema or make a film, and builds pathways to education and employment. Between 2009 and 2020, we launched film clubs in challenged communities, and operated a social franchise across Europe. The venues received hundreds of experts from the film industry, from universities and companies in a dynamic range of fields. The filmmaking programmes produced almost a hundred participatory and advocacy films.
