Do you want to screen artists’ films at your venue but aren’t sure how to go about it?

Do you want to develop an audience for artists’ moving image?

Do you want to know how to source artists’ films?

The Independent Cinema Office presents two essential training days aimed at cinemas, galleries and mixed arts venues who want to initiate or develop a programme of artists’ moving image. The one-day courses in Exeter and Brighton are independent but complementary, structured so you can choose to attend either one or both days.
