We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that, thanks to support from Regional Screen Scotland’s Local Film Festivals Challenge Fund, we’re bringing the first ever Prestwick Film Festival to the town in March 2019.
The festival will run from March the 14th until March the 18th, and will feature a range of different films in venues across Prestwick. We really hope that this will become an annual event in Prestwick and, of course, that it’ll eventually be hosted in the Broadway cinema!
We are delighted to announce that in 2019 we’ll be bringing pop up cinema to Prestwick. Friends of the Broadway Prestwick currently assist Dementia Friendly Prestwick in the delivery of monthly relaxed screenings in Prestwick Community Centre. A grant from The Weir Charitable Trust is enabling Friends of the Broadway Prestwick to purchase our own screening equipment and deliver fifteen additional screenings in the coming year.
The plan is to bring relaxed screenings to a wider audience at times, and in venues, that make it accessible to the whole community. Lorraine Tait, Trust Manager for The Weir Charitable Trust said: We are delighted to support this fantastic project to enable the group to offer additional accessible screenings to community groups in a relaxed atmosphere.
Look out for more information on the planned programme of screenings coming soon.
