Start of 2016 Summer Film Programme
The brochures for the 2016 Summer Film Programme are now available. They can be found in the Foxlowe entrance hall and elsewhere in town. An electronic copy can be downloaded here Summer 2016 programme and full details of all the films can be found under What’s On on the website.
The cinema is located on the first floor – regrettably we have no disabled access. We have a licensed bar, with hot drinks available from 7 pm for evening films.
Advance tickets are available from the Foxlowe Gallery (the Cafe if the Gallery is closed) or online.
Tickets are normally also available on the door, although we strongly recommend advance booking for popular films.
Please note that there are no documentary films, apart from special one-off screenings, during the summer season. Our programme of Wednesday Documentary films will return in the autumn.
Get ready for Feral Film Festival 2016! Budding young film makers, old pros and everyone in between are invited to enter their Short Films to our panel of independent judges. Winners from a range of categories will be screened at the Foxlowe Arts Centre and toured to other rural arts centres nationwide. Online applications will be accepted from May with a deadline of 1st September so there’s plenty of time to get your short film ready to share! Films must be no longer than 5 mins. For full details see www.feralstate.org.
The Difference A Grant Makes
Nearing the end of the BFI grant year we thought you’d be interested in how the funding has helped Foxlowe Films move forward. More details to follow in the next issue of ST13. Thankfully there have been lots of positive comments about the new seating, which was understandably the major source of complaints – so thanks for the positive feedback.
BFI funding has allowed us to screen less well publicised films, which may not guarantee full houses, so that audiences have access to both popular and diverse cinema experiences.
We have been able to boost the level of publicity especially in rural areas, drawing audiences from further afield with newcomers at almost all screenings. We have been able to experiment with a range of other initiatives such as the Meal/Film deals, programme notes, speakers, children’s workshops and a special screening for Rethink clients. Your comments continue to reflect the reason for establishing Foxlowe Films in the first place
“a friendly, local, community, art house cinema with a varied and stimulating programme”.
This programme is supported by Film Hub North West Central, proud to be a member of the BFI Film Audience Network, and has received funding from the BFI Development Fund. This is our fourteenth season. We have screened 140 films and have sold 6,937 tickets since we started in February 2012.
