ICO News

  • We’ve recently announced details of a hugely exciting new project, the Film Exhibition, Distribution & Sales Trainee Scheme, which aims to give 12 ambitious trainees a way into the industry. It prioritises candidates from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds, women, and those who consider themselves disabled, in an effort to encourage diversity in the industry. Trainees will gain placements in film distribution, independent exhibition or international sales companies. If you’re passionate about film, have excellent communication skills, basic IT stills, the desire to learn and the ability to work as part of a team, read more about this fantastic project. The deadline is very soon: next Monday 1st December at 8am.
  • The deadline’s also approaching for Bespoke Business Planning and Financial Advice for Independent Exhibitors. You’ll be matched with a specialist advisor to gain affordable in-depth consultancy for your venue. Sounds good? That’s because it is. Apply! Deadline: this Friday 28th November.
  • We’re looking forward to Screening Days South East this Thursday & Friday! The films line-up – including A Most Violent Year (pictured above), The Duke of Burgundy, The Tribe and more – is superb. If you’re coming along, have you signed up for the Neighbourhood Cinema training event yet? We’re offering this for free on Friday afternoon, and will be welcoming speakers from the BFI, Filmbank and Cinegi to discuss new ways of accessing film content, what the BFI Neighbourhood scheme can offer your venue, and best practice tips for film programming.
