Bringing the cinema to your community venue

REMOTE has enabled over 20 village venues to host high quality cinema events in their village and community halls and has resulted in over 13,000 people attending cinema events since its beginnings in 2012.

The project is supported by Cine North with funding from Film Hub North – part of the BFI Film Audience Network, Eden District Council – and Freida Scott Foundation.


Are you interested in hosting film nights in your local village or community halls?

We are always pleased to hear from potential new venues. Participating venues will receive a comprehensive package of support from Eden Arts and Cine North, including technical training, marketing assistance, programming advice, film licence booking and administrative support. A high definition cinema kit, including a large screen and high quality sound system is provided along with access to a rich and diverse programme of film titles for venues to choose from.

Heather Walker, Eden Arts’ Head of Projects said “This is a really successful project, it has enabled young and old to work together to put on really sociable events for the community. Those that can’t get to the main town cinema have opportunity to see both new and old films, and it gives those that are isolated a chance to meet up with neighbours.  A quote from an audience member sums it up best. “It’s cinema but sociable”.

If you are interested in joining the scheme please contact Simon Cole at Eden Arts as soon as possible on 01768 899444 or email

REMOTE Cinema is about bringing the community together through cinema events and by event we mean watching great films together and creating fun, social events that could include dressing up, food, music, games and other activities, perhaps inspired by the film’s themes.
