ICO news

  • We’re excited to be heading (for the first time in Screening Days history!) to Lewes’ lovely Depot Cinema for our Summer Screening Days. If you’d like to spend three days by the sea, watching films and networking with colleagues from across the UK, book your pass by Friday 14 June. Also, if you work or volunteer in exhibition and are aged between 18-30, remember that you can grab one of our discounted passes, starting at £12.5o.
  • Recently featured on The Guardian, New Towns, Our Town is a unique feature-length archive film programme that we’re proud to be able to make available to exhibitors across the UK.  This new archive film sheds light on one of the most significant shared stories of British social history, the legacy and impact of the New Towns movement. Read more and book this vital film now.
  • The latest two programmes in our popular Britain on Film tour are also currently available for bookings with subsidised fees, starting from as little as £20. During a time of intense political turmoil, growing public activism and ongoing debates, Protest! and Welcome to Britain offer a chance to explore a century of protest and new arrivals to the UK via touching and fascinating footage from around the country.
  • What would summer be without attending a great outdoor screening? If you’d like to organise one yourself, our (free!) online guide is here to help you with that.
  • Programming is at the heart of what we do at the ICO. Our expert team of programmers work closely with all UK distributors to make sure your venue has the best set of films for your audiences. To find out more,  get in touch with our programming team today.
