FilmLincs Rural Cinema Scheme

For general guidance visit Coronavirus (COVID-19) information, advice and guidance.

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Arts Development have access to cinema equipment for the screening of DVDs and Blu-rays in community venues across North Lincolnshire.

Previously with funding from the British Film Institute’s Neighbourhood Cinema Fund and North Lincolnshire Council, FilmLincs brought cinema to village halls and community centres across North Lincolnshire. The scheme worked with local promoters to bring all the joys of cinema directly to rural audiences, with a focus on British Independent Films. Equipment hire, a technician and publicity is all included in the scheme. If you are a village hall committee or local community group and are interested in finding out more about future projects please contact us.

Upcoming screenings

We have no upcoming screenings but please check back soon for updates.


In addition to the FilmLincs Scheme, we can offer:

  • Loan of the projection equipment and screen
  • A technician to help you set up the equipment and show the film
  • A choice of up to 8,000 films, including recent releases and specialist films. Visit the Filmbank website  for more information
  • Help with marketing your film screening
  • Help in searching and applying for funding for your rural cinema project

Equipment hire costs £30 and the form explains the details. Technicians are an additional cost, but after first use, the hirer can be trained to set up.
