We are really excited to be working with Carn to Cove this year on an exciting new project funded by FEAST and Creative Engand to bring the cinema experience to rural communities across Cornwall - C Fylm!
Carn to Cove has been instrumental in the formation of successful community cinemas now running across Cornwall in Bude (Bude Community Cinema), Launceston (FLIC: Film Launceston in the Community), Carnon Downs, Stithians and many more of the 85 communities who are part of the live Carn to Cove performing arts network.
As part of this new initiative, C-Fylm is offering to support community venues to screen a season of films for their local audience; offering people across Cornwall the chance to watch great films in their own community, in the company of friends and family, at an affordable price.
Communities who are part of the scheme will be able to access:
- Support from C-Fylm to establish a film club to suit their local audience, whether it be with mainstream Hollywood releases or special interest cinema, art-house or foreign language films.
- Advice on programming, marketing and on creating a social event for the community
- Use of projection equipment and technical support.
- Access to the Motion Picture Licensing Company blanket licence for public screening of films
C-Fylm is a members-only film club, but membership only costs £5! Members of the community film club will benefit from:
- Free entry into three C-Fylm screenings (30 screenings across Cornwall) & a £1 discount on subsequent screenings
- Free entry to two special screenings at the Cornwall Film Festival in November
- Invitations to the Cornwall Film Festival opening night reception and VIP events
- £1 discount on all Carn to Cove events.
Film licence restrictions
- The performances must take place in the premises notified by the Licensee
- No specific titles, characters or producers names can be used to advertise to the general public
- No admission fee will be charged to the audience
- Only film titles produced and/or distributed by MPLC-affiliated companies may be shown
If you are passionate about film and want to set up a film club in your community, all you need is a space to screen the films, energetic volunteer support (friends and family will do), some bright ideas for programming and bringing in audiences and C-Fylm will help to make it happen.

See what top UK film critic Mark Kermode has picked out as his highlights for this year's Cornwall Film Festival! Mark Kermode's Pick of CFF2012 from Cornwall Filmfestival on Vimeo.
We start by explaining the factors which produce good and bad 3D viewing experiences and give some tips for good filming as well as do's and don'ts for current best practice.
We then cover current stereo 3D technology, capture and display standards, 3D cameras systems, 3D displays with some examples of current 3D equipment provided in the workshop.
We move on to do some 3D filming exercises and review the footage live on 3D TV's and monitors.
Finally we ingest the 3D footage and do some basic 3D post-production work, such as disparity corrections and a simple edit, before outputting a short 3D film.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a memory stick along to take a copy of the film away at the end of the day.
Tea/coffee, refreshments, lunch and some stereo 3D technology to play with
“Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide after he had sacked the famous town of Troy. Tell me, too, about all these things, O daughter of Jove, from whatsoever source you may know them”.Homer’s Odyssey
Homer’s cornerstone of literature is vividly told with beautiful illustration and masterful puppetry. Cinematic projection and cunning tricks transform a suitcase full of cut-out paper puppets into an array of living characters and striking landscapes. A silent film is created before your eyes, set to a captivating live score from exceptional musicians.

This November, the Cornwall Film Festival (8-11 November) has an opportunity to offer one-day workshops in digital cinematography using the Red One Camera.
This workshop will offer an easy approach to digital cinematography through the Red One Camera, including how an image is produced from data capture, information on the current production chain, and how to grade images for different displays, from plasma to projector, on readily available equipment.
The course will be run by DP Terry Flaxton, a senior research fellow at the University of Bristol.
We currently calling for expressions of interest for these one-day workshops, which are expected to take place 7th & 8th of November in Newquay.
