Pop-up Picturehouse: Vote for our Community Cinema!

Please visit http://communityforce.natwest.com/project/704 and vote for our Pop-up Picturehouse project.

We’re a group of volunteers who want to take big-screen film out into communities, encouraging people to come and experience different types of films while making new friends and taking part in stimulating discussions.

We plan to cover venues across the whole Fylde coast, and offer free screenings so that nobody is left out because they can’t afford it.

We’ll also have access to a wide range of films from world cinema to film noir, sci-fi to Bollywood, classics and real-life stories.  Audiences will decide what they want to watch and discuss.

The competition is tough, but we really want to make this happen. So do vote for us, it’ll only take a couple of minutes, but it’ll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Thanks

Aunty
