The Rural Touring Cinema
FLIX IN THE STIX is the latest project from Lincoln-based community organisation Blueprint: Film Foundation. It is a touring cinema that hosts a monthly screening in seven villages across Lincolnshire, showing a varied and interesting selection of films, including recent releases, award-winning films and classic titles. Films will be screened by a technician on state-of-the-art equipment, transforming the local hall into a cinema for one evening a month.
There will be food and drink available at the screenings, with proceeds going to support the local communities. Tickets will be priced at £4, with £2 of all proceeds being donated to the village hall committee for use within the hall and local community.
Through Flix In The Stix, Blueprint: Film Foundation aims to provide a low-cost activity for communities in and around Lincolnshire without the hassle of traveling further afield into surrounding towns and cities and to provide this exciting event for people unable to travel.
Blueprint: Film Foundation are an innovative community interest group with a passion for film. For almost a decade, they have been delivering a host of film and multimedia projects across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands. This project was originally funded in part by the British Film Institute’s ‘Neighbourhood Cinema’ initiative, and the ‘Awards For All’ Big Lottery Fund.
It is our ambition to grow Flix in the Stix to be as far-reaching and inclusive as possible. We are looking to develop the programme, look for further funding sand sponsorship opportunities and work with local councils, committees snd village halls to bring Flix in the Stix to as many places as possible. If you are interested in joining the tour, there are three ways to move forward.
The waiting list is currently very long, but we are looking to find ways to fund the expansion of the service. If we are successful we may be able to offer the service for free to new partners.
We are a non-profit company, but there are running costs involved, you could be a part of the service by paying a low-cost fee to cover the overheads and running of events.
We can offer support to help groups to apply for funding to receive our service.
