>>>Covid-19 update: we wish everyone reading this the best of health and safety for you and your communities. Open Cinema depends on people being able to gather in community spaces. Because of lockdowns in the UK, Ireland and the Nordic and Baltic countries, our operations are currently at a standstill. Read more in the blog post from our CEO here.>>>
Open Cinema enables any community have a cinema or make a film, and builds pathways to education and employment. Since 2009, we have launched film clubs in challenged communities, and now operate a social franchise across Europe. The venues have received hundreds of experts from the film industry, from universities and companies in a dynamic range of fields. The filmmaking programmes have now produced almost a hundred participatory and advocacy films.
