Venue Support –

Growing audiences for specialist films in Derby.

    QUAD is a Cinema, Gallery, Cafe Bar and Workshop space in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in Derby. There’s always something to see or do: watch a film, see the exhibition, try a digital course or have a drink!

    With help from Film Hub NWC, in 2016/17 QUAD increased our audience for specialised cinema substantially. In 2017, they are looking to focus their efforts more tightly than the last year and narrow the number of titles that receive an extra push. They have introduced a discounted rate for 16-25 year olds and aim to increase the percentage of younger audiences that attend QUAD.

    The support will continue to the Specialised Cinema Marketing role employed last year, with the aim for them to have a more interactive relationship with the Cinema Programmer, with the person having more of a say in the programming to help with the marketing. They will also look to marry the knowledge of the various existing groups in Derby and Derbyshire with the programming selection.

    Further to the above, the are looking to re-launch the Feel Good Film Club, a bi-monthly screening night dedicated to positive representations of Black culture working with local Radio Derby DJ Devon Daley.
