We're delighted to host the second annual gathering of Welsh-based rural community cinemas and film societies during the 2017 Borderlines Film Festival, the UK's largest rural film festival.

As you all know, running a community cinema or film society can be hugely rewarding, but often involves a lot of hard work. That’s why Film Hub Wales have partnered with Flicks in the Sticks and Moviola to offer this special event which includes an interactive marketing session with Rachael Castell and easy-to-follow marketing and social media advice from fellow exhibitors in Wales (Off Y Grid).

Lunch will be included and exhibitors can also book tickets for a special Borderlines preview of The Olive Tree in the beautiful Bookshop Cinema. Please book your tickets online when available and FHW will cover the cost of your ticket*. We advise you to book ASAP, as the capacity of the cinema is 48.

Further event details will be announced, including a full schedule for the day.
