Rural screens bring films to community

REEL Solutions’ community cinema project, Screenwaves, is set to transform Glaisdale’s Robinson Institute and Hinderwell Village Hall into state-of-the-art rural cinemas.

Screenwaves is intended to develop rural cinema screens throughout the county and is run by Reel Solutions, who provide support for the independent film industry in the region, and the project is showing two feature-length documentaries.

Zoe Naylor, Screenwaves director, said: “There was fantastic support for Screenwaves’ first season and the scheme really seems to be enabling and inspiring rural communities, many of whom haven’t been to the cinema for a long time, to start watching films again.”

Senna, to be shown at the Robinson Institute in Glaisdale, tells the compelling life story of racing driver Ayrton Senna and promises laughter, tears, thrills and spills.

Hinderwell Village Hall is set to host a screening of Life in a Day, which celebrates the astonishing spectrum of life on the planet with unique personal stories documenting one day, 24 July 2010, by people from across the globe.

The film was produced by Ridley Scott and direct by Kevin Macdonald, from 80,000 submissions, 4,500 hours of footage, and 192 countries.

Senna is showing tomorrow (1 Oct) at 7.30pm in the Robinson Institute, Glaisdale.

Life in a Day is showing on Saturday 15 October at 7.30pm in Hinderwell Village Hall.
