CfA SW Viewing Sessions
Every year Cinema for All South West organises two Viewing Sessions at different venues around the region – one in Spring and one in Autumn – opportunities for representatives from film societies and community cinemas to preview six new film releases, including some lesser known titles that may well appeal to your audience, as well as meeting people from all over the region who share an enthusiasm for screening films in their communities.
Please note that these events are not open to the general public – only members of organising committees of community cinemas/film societies that are currently signed up with Cinema for All or C Fylm are able to attend. Please contact us if you need further information about this.
Our Next Viewing Session – Autumn 2018
Our Autumn 2018 Viewing Session is now confirmed:
The all-important business of film selection for the day is now being actively pursued by the CfA SW committee – details will be here as soon as possible.
What we can say for certain is that, as usual, registration and coffee will begin at 10:00, with the first film starting at 10:30. So start to plan your journey now!
Previous Viewing Sessions
8 April South Petherton – 18 April Liskeard
Over 100 delegates from across the region attended our two 2018 Spring Viewing sessions.
The first event, held at South Petherton on 8 April, had to be hastily rescheduled because of snow, and we’re very grateful to our hosts Petherton Picture Show, and in particular their chair Cliff Keating, for all the efforts to make that possible.
With seven titles in the programmes, there was close competition for the audience favourite. Combined reactions put the Israeli film In Between in the lead with 85%, just ahead of Loving Vincent (84%) and Hotel Salvation (83%).
The breakdown of voting for each of the venues can be downloaded here.
CfA SW film notes for all of the films shown can be found here.
Loving Vincent and The Florida Project are available to CfA members and associates at preferential booking rates from Cinema for All’s Booking Scheme.
