Film Development

Derbyshire Film

Derbyshire Film Community Cinema on Arts DerbyshireDerbyshire Film is a network of voluntary promoters that screens films in alternative venues, particularly in areas where cinema might not otherwise be available.

These voluntary promoters are based at venues as diverse as village halls, community centres, schools and colleges – anywhere that is a meeting point for local people and can provide some very basic facilities.

If you want help turning your local venue into a temporary cinema, then contact your nearest Derbyshire Film promoter.
