Broadway Nottingham at night

ICO Screening Days - October 2016

This autumn, we're delighted to return to the ever-popular Broadway in Nottingham for our next Screening Days.

Our Screening Days events are THE way to see the best upcoming independent film releases. If you want to discover films to bring in new audiences and satisfy existing ones, Screening Days offers you the chance to see films first and enhance your programme.

Featuring key films set for release from November to March 2017, this industry event is for anyone in programming, marketing or education at cinemas, film festivals and film societies.

Inclusive programming sessions

After the fantastic reception to our capacity building sessions at our last Screening Days, we'll be following suit this time, with sessions on the theme of inclusive programming.

“Everyone should have access to cinema that nourishes the soul and changes lives.” This is the ICO’s vision, but how can we ensure the cinema is genuinely inclusive of everyone? Moving beyond the buzz-word ‘diversity’, we take a closer look at ‘inclusivity’, and how to programme great cinema so that anyone can access it. How do we ensure everyone is included in cinema that is reflective of the variety of lived experience around the world?

Using practical examples, we’ll show how your venue can help grow audiences for cinema for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and people experiencing dementia, bring audiences to diverse representations of gender, ethnicity and sexual identity, and more.
