Technical Skills for Digital Exhibition


Technical Skills for Digital Exhibition provides bespoke advice and assistance for independent exhibitors of all shapes and sizes across the UK. A technical expert will visit your venue and give you the tailored advice you need, with recommendations you can apply instantly.

Venue: Sessions take place at applicant's venue
Cost: A half-day (3hr) session is £100 (+VAT) = £120.
Up to 10 individuals can attend the training and organisations can group together if requiring assistance for a similar issue. ICO have a limited number of bursaries which can cover up to 75% of the Technical Ambassador fee (£100 + VAT).

To deliver this service we have the expertise of 20 Technical Ambassadors (TAs) - a fleet of highly skilled and experienced projectionists, technicians and engineers from across the UK who are based in your region to help assist with whatever your non-emergency technical issue.

  • Would you like to be able to show more Event Cinema but aren't sure how it'll go on the night? 
  • Would you like to host outdoor screenings this summer but want to get the right kit? 
  • Would a second screen make your venue more profitable and diverse but you don't know how it'll work in your space? 
  • Would you like to show local archive material but need advice on creating a DCP? 
  • Do you just want to be sure you're making the best value choices when it comes to updating any element of your equipment? Sound, projection, internet, servers? 

Here are some examples of the difference this scheme has made to film societies, small venues, mixed arts venues, film festivals and community cinemas.
