Rural film clubs offered support and expertise to set up
A scheme to promote the formation of cinema clubs has been launched by Cornwall Film Festival and the region's rural touring programme.
Called C-Fylm, the initiative is offering support to 10 venues to screen a season of films in their own community at an affordable price as part of the Carn to Cove programme.
Cornwall Film Festival director Tiffany Holmes said: "We believe that film can change your life. It can expose you to worlds you never imagined, broaden your horizons and change your perspectives.
"With this project we hope to enable more people to watch amazing films by making it easier to access them and also to make a social event out of it."

Valid until: Saturday, June 01 2013
Any community wishing to take part in the scheme will have free support from C-Fylm to establish a film club to suit their local audience, whether it be with mainstream Hollywood releases or special interest cinema, art-house or foreign language films. C-Fylm will offer advice on programming, marketing and creating a social event for the community, as well as providing projection equipment and technical support.
Carn to Cove has already been instrumental in the formation of community cinemas at Bude, Launceston, Carnon Downs and Stithians, as well as staging regular film events in several of the 85 communities that make up its live performing arts network. Most of the venues are village halls.
C-Fylm is being funded by Feast, which gives support to small community art projects throughout Cornwall and is funded by Cornwall Council and the Arts Council.
"Anyone who is passionate about film and wants to set up a film club in their community should get in touch," said Tiffany. "All that is needed is a space to screen the films, the energetic volunteer support of friends and family and some bright ideas for programming. C-Fylm will do the rest."
