Thank you for asking

Well, it’s been a long summer and seems as if we have been sucking on that intermission ice lolly for the longest time. You might have wondered if we’d got tangled up in the fire curtains.

Some of you know that we’re working on a new project with Our Favourite Places to produce a film map of Sheffield showing some of the locations where movies have been made here over the years. And not just the Full Monty but some you might not have known about, including all sorts of local film info. So that’s been keeping us busy lately.

However, it’s not the same as doing a screening and after the fifth person in a week asked when we were putting on another film, and someone else even offered to pay for a licence fee, we thought the summer break had gone on for long enough.

So it’s time to polish up the projector lens, roll out the gaffer tape and get film club back in gear. As usual we have lots of ideas…but more importantly, what are we doing next? And where? Still working on that bit. We’ll let you know after half term. But if anyone has any extra special requests for a film that they’re longing to see, or ideas for a theme they’d love to collaborate with, then do get in touch and we’ll see if we can fit it into a future programme.

Be seeing you again very soon.

    Hey there, this is a great site and very inspirational. This is something that I really want to do myself. I want people to see some films that they would otherwise never see or never get the chance to. I’m looking for help. I live in Bangor, Northern Ireland, and wonder if at all can someone offer any advice or guidance? Some of your ideas are great and the Jaws and Alien nights sound great craic.

    Anyway, hope you can help.

    Cheers.

  2. Thank you Andy! That’s so good to hear, especially as our website is in the process of a serious rejig!
    And yes – do it! It’s hard work sometimes but totally worth the effort.
    I think your best bet would be to contact Cinema For All (http://cinemaforall.org.uk/) because they can talk you right through all the stages of setting up a film club and also give you great access to resources. They will also be able to put you in touch with some brilliant film clubs in Northern Ireland – Newcastle and Dungannon spring to mind, though obviously not in your immediate area so maybe you will be filling a gap in the market there!
    All the best and let us know how you get on…
