The popular coaching programme allows film groups to access funds and knowledge to empower them to take the next steps with their community cinema.

Sustain Develop is for community cinemas that are ready to focus on a specific project idea or make a meaningful collaboration with another community cinema. This includes a bursary between £600-£1000 and 3x 90-minute online workshops, to help create a project plan and develop any skills or new information that will help build your ideas. Past projects and collaborations have included: creating a cinema history walking tour, building an outdoor screening event, a collaborative short film screening spotlighting East Asian talent.

Deadline for all applications is Sunday 25th September 2022.
