Independent Cinema Office
Our mission is to develop an open, challenging and thriving film sector. We are the UK’s national body that supports independent cinemas, film festivals and exhibitors of all forms. We want everyone to have access to cinema that nourishes the soul and changes lives.
Black Lives Matter
We at the ICO believe that Black Lives Matter. We support the work of Black artists, Black filmmakers and Black professionals through our activities but we know we could do better both internally and externally. We are spending time reflecting and learning and will be making public a plan of our current and future actions very soon. Until then we stand in solidarity with the incredible coalition of individuals and organisations which constitute the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We will endeavour to listen and learn.
