Back during Flatpack 11 we launched Film Camp, a one-day training event exploring the latest innovations in film exhibition.
Now in its fourth year, Film Camp returns once again to gather together film exhibitors from across the Midlands to share their wealth of experience, and to explore fresh approaches to programming, inclusive marketing and audience development. This event is open to everyone from multi-screen venues and festivals to community cinema organisers and student film groups.
Film Camp is produced by Film Hub Midlands, part of the BFI Film Audience Network (FAN). Led by Broadway Cinema (Nottingham) and Flatpack Projects (Birmingham), we are excited to bring more films to more people in more places across the Midlands. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ticket includes registration and networking, one morning and one afternoon workshop (first come first serve basis), lunch and drinks reception.
