For those who haven't met me my name is James and I am involved with a community cinema in Manchester, UK. I programme films, help with press and general volunteering. We are trying to make the cinema space available to anyone who want's to use it and this got me thinking. I would love to have an exclusive Eurocrime festival celebrating everything we love about this classic and unique period of film.
This would be the first time I have ever attempted something like this so I would like to use this thread as an open invitation for feedback and ideas.
- Would you be willing to travel to Manchester for it?
- What films would you like to see on the big screen?
- Could you help with promotion, flyer design etc?
- Would you prefer two short days or one long one (midday to midnight for example)
Any feedback would be most welcome. I am hoping to make the festival free, but due to people having to work the bar etc there may have to be a ticket price, of which would be no more than £10 or so.
I look forward to your ideas and suggestions
