Screening Days South East - November 2013

22/11/2013 - 23/11/2013

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.

At Screening Days South East, there will be the opportunity to meet with representatives from Film Hub South East to discuss how your organisation might participate within its programme of activities over the next three years.

This two-day event is for cinemas, mixed arts venues, film societies, film festivals, museums, galleries and community venues exhibiting film.


Registration for this event is now closed.

Screening Days South East is an industry event which is only open to people that work or volunteer in the film exhibition sector, and are based in the South East Hub region.


Bursaries of up to £100 are available towards travel and accommodation costs for participants that live 25 miles from Brighton. Bursaries are available on a first come first serve basis, and are limited to one per organisation in the first instance.  You can apply for a bursary when booking your place.
