Moviola Noticeboard

Moviola's programming and film-booking service:

MOVIOLA  provides a programming advice and film booking service for some 250 venues right across the UK.

Participating venues need to register with us as a Moviola ASSOCIATE.  This is free of charge and simply requires you to commit to some basic, good-sense rules for showing and handling films.   Three times a year, we will send you a menu of recommended films and an accompanying DVD of trailers.  You then send us a list of the films you wish to show and we will book them for you.  For most films, there is no minimum charge and no extra VAT - you pay us just 35% of ticket sales which is passed back to the main film distributor.  Moviola charges a small booking fee for each film to cover its administration costs and the cost of running the scheme.

For more information click on the UK Associates button on the vertical menu bar.

Moviola Cinematheque:

An exciting addition to the usual Moviola programme.  With generous support from the BFI through both its Neighbourhood Project and its Film Hub South West & West Midlands, we are able to offer a range of more

specialised films.  Look for the asterisked titles on the film page.  You will find a mixture of classics, world cinema and independent releases.

Moviola Partners and Associates

a brief explanation

People often ask us why we have two different categories of venue:

Moviola 'Partners' and Moviola 'Associates'. It's actually pretty simple:

at a Moviola Partner show, the film will be presented by one of our trained Presenters using Moviola equipment, whilst Associates have their own equipment and undertake the projection themselves.

Partner venues are based in the South West, where we are,

whereas an Associate venue can set up pretty much anywhere in the UK.
