Other Details


The cost of our service varies dependent on where your venue is based and the funding we receive for that area. However, we strive to keep our costs as low as possible and any money you make from organising raffles or selling refreshments etc. is yours. Please contact your County Co-ordinator for further details. If you already have a projector, screen & speakers in your venue then we can still support you in running a film event.
