Buxton Film: Engaging Young People in Film Programming & Marketing –

Working towards engaging new youth audiences for specialised film in Buxton.

    Buxton Film worked with young people and students to create a programme of film that will engage new youth audiences.

    Buxton Film is a successful community cinema organisation committed to developing new audiences. Situated in the High Peak , Buxton has not had a commercial cinema since the 1970s and the nearest cinemas are approximately 20 miles away. This distance, and the cost of travel to get there, limit the access local young people have to experience film on the big screen.

    Through the Engaging Young People project Buxton Film developed a series of screenings aimed at youth audiences, working with them in the film selections and developing their marketing skills to promote the films to those living in the region.
