CineCov Film Night Mini Fund

Thursday 23rd September, 2021 Posted by Brian Harley

Ever fancied hosting your own public film screening?

CineCov is turning Coventry into a pop up cinema during the UK City of Culture 2021 year and we're looking to identify and support aspiring film programmers who can help us make this happen.

We want to award up to 12 applicants, who are interested in organising their own public screenings, using our Mini Fund. Each applicant can apply for up to £500.

Don't worry if you have never organised a film screening before. We're here to support and guide you. The door is open, you just have to walk through it!

The aim of the fund is to help establish, support and build capacity for film programmers based in the city. If you would like to have an informal zoom chat before you submit an application, this can be arranged with CineCov's Project Manager, Michelle.

Please feel free to request this via email: michelle@flatpackfestival.org.uk

A few FAQ's...

Who is the fund for? This fund is for residents of Coventry who would like to organise a public film screening.

What can the money cover? The funding can be used for costs such as venue or equipment hire, film licences, marketing etc.

When can screenings take place? Film screenings can take place anytime between October 2021 and the end of May 2022. We advise that you allow a minimum of 8 weeks between application submission and screening date to ensure adequate time for marketing your event.

When's the deadline? There is no deadline. This is a rolling application process however, don't delay, as once all of the commissions have been allocated the fund will close.
