ICO strongly believes that the most successful cinemas and film societies are those where staff have the opportunity to watch films and feel passionate about them. To this end, the ICO runs national Screening Days events, a staple in the independent cinema calendar giving exhibitors the chance to watch the best upcoming film releases from across the globe and discuss them with industry peers; enabling you to go away and create incredible programmes.
Screening Days comprise intensive preview screenings of features that will be hitting screens in the months ahead and in addition, we sometimes run specialised events on a particular theme such as diversity, archive film or cinema for young audiences.
That’s why staff and volunteers of cinemas, mixed arts venues, film festivals, and film societies attend again and again. But if you haven’t come before, here’s five reasons Screening Days could be invaluable for you…
