Film Camp Vol. 2

After a roaring success at last year’s festival, we’re back in our new guise as Film Hub Midlands to bring you another jam-packed fun-filled day of workshops and training sessions exploring new ideas and fresh approaches to cinema exhibition. There will be plenty of opportunities to chat to other film exhibitors over lunch (provided) or during networking drinks at the end of the day. The event is open to everyone from multi-screen venues and festivals to community cinema organisers and student film groups.

For a run down of sessions see below, and to buy tickets head over to our brand new website!
