Screening Days South East

The ICO is proud to be partnering with the newly established Film Hub South East to offer a special Screening Days event for exhibitors based in the South East Hub region (comprising Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Oxfordshire).

Come and watch preview films months before their cinema release, network with fellow exhibitors in your local area, and find out about Film Hub South East’s plans for developing opportunities for film exhibition in the region.

Film Hub South East is part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network (FAN). Its role is to bring film, education, community, exhibition, archive and events experts together to offer more choice, more insight and grow new audiences.

The Hub will serve as an information resource for news about specialised film and provide support for the exhibition sector. This will take the form of curation, community screenings, special events, skills & training and advice surgeries.
