We’re so excited to be part of the theatrical release of ‘NO’ tomorrow evening and even more delighted that over 90 people want to come and see a Chilean film, in the wilds of the South East London suburbs, on a chilly Wednesday evening!
The BFFS, in conjunction with Network Releasing, have enabled us to have this pre-DVD release screening and we fervently hope that other distribution companies will look to the increasingly vibrant community cinema/film society/pop-up cinema scene and find ways of including us in theatrical releases more often – this must be an especially sensible thing for distributors of independent and World cinema films as they essentially have a pre-sold niche audience, which, when taken together, amounts to many hundred thousands box office admissions nationally.
The BFFS’s annual report from last year shows the growth of small cinemas like FILMBOX: http://www.bffs.org.uk/aboutus/aboutthesector/researchandintelligence.html
