Notice of Moviola’s 2020 AGM

Moviola hereby gives notice that our 2020 AGM will be held on 19th November at 10am

Due to the current climate, we anticipate that this may not be a physical meeting. However, should any interested parties wish to participate – please register your intent with Neil via the contact page with ‘AGM 2020’ in your email subject header.

Full details of how to take part will be sent nearer the date of the meeting.

We stand with #BlackLivesMatter

We stand with #BlackLivesMatter

In solidarity with the black community, Moviola would like to express its support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement through non-violent and legal protest as a means of dismantling systematic and structural racism.

As an organisation within the arts, we are aware of under-representation and the lack of opportunities for people of black origin within the sector, whether this is projected on a screen or in organisations.

Moviola’s Communication & Diversity project is ongoing, including having a full-time officer appointed to tackling diversity, and they will investigate further how we can improve representation within the community cinema sector.

We have worked to ensure that black voices are amplified, as well as a wider range of marginalised groups, by including films which will stimulate conversations, debate and reflection. Titles that have recently been included in Moviola’s menu, which champion black filmmakers, include Kasi Lemmons Harriet, Shola Amoo’s The Last Tree and Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk.

Within our small team, we represent a range of diverse people, who all contribute toward inclusivity through pro-active advocacy with our customers, and by raising awareness of groups who may not feel that their experiences are fairly represented. 

We recognise that this is a difficult time for the black community.

We acknowledge that there is always scope to improve ourselves by building our relationships with black audiences and collaborators in the future to ensure that this momentum of change is not lost.

This link to useful organisations contains information on how you can become an ally to the cause should you wish.

We understand that we will never truly understand, but we are learning and will do better.

We encourage others to do the same.

#MoviolaTogether Week 6 Beast

#MoviolaTogether Week 6 Beast

Welcome to Week 6 of #MoviolaTogether!

After a well-earned rest, this week’s voting has decreed that Jersey-based mystery BEAST is our film of the week!

You can find it here: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/beast

Please tell us your thoughts on the film and drop us a line on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp don’t forget to include the name of your local Moviola venue!

Last month’s film was the tough Brit-flick SEXY BEAST – which saw ex-pat gangster, Ray Winstone come back for one last job, and Sir Ben Kingsley use the English language in a manner that anyone who ever saw Gandhi would never have anticipated!

Helen B commented on Facebook:

Did watch this but it was a bit too violent for my taste but I did like the amusing twist at the end!.

Edwina from Orkney on WhatsApp:

 “Not a film I would have chosen- I am a wimp with any sniff of violence or even worse, the build up of tension preceding violence. I had a few behind the cushion moments and Gandhi and Lovejoy will never be the same for me…. However, it was an edge of the seat watch – great character parts from the above mentioned and some surreal scenes of cinematography. All in all a good watch, well acted and produced and a tension gripping story.    

Many Moviola venues are based in rural, small communities – oftentimes places where the village knows everyone’s business!

We hope this film appeals to those of you who know EXACTLY what we mean!

BEAST is the debut film by director Michael Pearce, starring two (then) relatively unknown faces, Jessie Buckley (Chernobyl/Wild Rose) and Johnny Flynn (Emma). 

 27 year old Moll is still living at home with her oppressive mother (Geraldine James on fine form!) on the island of Jersey. She is boxed in on all fronts  but she’s far too timid to rebel against the constant comparisons made with her superficially successful sister, who is married and has a very comfortable life. After a birthday party goes awry, Moll goes out of control and crosses paths with the seemingly simple Pascal who shows her a way out, but at what cost?

We loved this film and to say much more will spoil the surprises that lurk under the surface.

The film was rated 15 by the BBFC.

To join in with #MoviolaTogether – simply watch the film and tell us your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp.

Recommendations & updates from Moviola HQ June 2020

Recommendations & updates from Moviola HQ June 2020

This is a small update of what is going on from behind the scenes at Moviola HQ and some time-busting recommendations

Thank you to everyone who has been in contact with us to talk about the current challenges with your community cinemas (and checking in on us – we’re doing well –  thank you!).

Last week, we sent out a small survey to our Partners and Associates to grasp a general idea of when your cinemas might be returning and what tasks may lie ahead to ensure your audiences return.

We are ever so grateful to everyone’s input which will shape how Moviola can support our network of community cinemas going forward. Many of your concerns have been heeded and we will look into how we can aid the re-opening of your wonderful cinematic sanctuaries with gusto!

Some of you have mentioned the type of films and particular titles which you would like to see on the next season’s offering (many of them were already in our planned summer menu anyway). Whilst we might struggle to nudge the multiplexes out of the way to be first in line for the new James Bond film, we will be reviewing some titles to see where rights issues have changed over the intervening months to offer an exciting mix of crowd-pleasers, escapism and stunning film-making.

With these matters in mind, Neil is still in the office helping any cinema organisers who ping him an email or a WhatsApp. Don’t forget that you can drop him a line/call him, too (about absolutely anything) on the contacts page here.

Here’s some of Moviola & film-related ventures that he’s been up to:

“Hello everyone!

I’m sure many of you are cautious as to what the future holds for cinema and indeed I am too. It’s the second thing on my mind after an emergency visit to the barber’s!

Whilst currently looking like the wild man of Borneo does help in keeping social-distance breakers at bay, I do also enjoy interacting with so many of you through phone calls or emails from Moviolans over the past few months. It’s the evergreen deep passion to keep community cinema alive which has kept the home-fires burning here at mini-Moviola HQ!

Last Friday, I had a good natter with a Wales venue about their new screen and, after nerding about various aspect ratios, I soon found some money-saving options – as well as discussing their current films and what they think the immediate future might hold.

Starting the #MoviolaTogether initiative was great fun and having rested the idea for a few weeks, I hope that Moviola audiences might find some interest in the idea once more. You can find out more by clicking Julie Walters or Michael Caine above!

Virtual film clubs have sprung up all over the place in the past few months, offering some comfort and replication of the community hall chin-wag which we’re all so accustomed to.

 

Between playing Zoom pub quizzes (which has netted a fair amount to local food banks), I have missed many of these film-a-longs, but I did finally join director, Carol Morley’s Friday Night Film Club.

Her choices and guests have offered insightful context for films usually off my radar – all of which have been made available for free to all.

Last Friday saw Jeanie Finlay’s SOUND IT OUT (2011)  transport me back to the days when I would go fishing for vinyls and CDs in my local record shop.

I highly recommend her Friday Films and then scrolling through her feed to find reactions and information about the film to fill in the gaps – they’re often fascinating.

 

As a devoted film fan, I have been pulling out some forgotten classics (and ashamedly, some unwatched films) from my library during lock-down. It has given me pause for thought to explore more about cultures I’m less familiar with, than those that I am. From the very relatable laddish behaviour of the men from the small village in Fellini’s I VITELLONI (1953), to the polite bitterness of an arranged marriage falling apart in the Japanese film THE FLAVOUR OF GREEN TEA OVER RICE (1952) (part of the BFI’s new Japan season). Despite now being on a no-carb lockdown diet, I have tried a small amount on the weekend and can confirm that it is delicious – whether or not it has the power to ameliorate broken relationships is yet to be tested!

 

Without being overly political, the world’s events in the past week have also touched a raw nerve – and the usual way I cope with any of these sorts of events is normally through the guise of something I understand, and that tends to be the lens of film

While all my colleagues at Moviola will stand by me in asserting that prejudicial behaviour is not tolerated in any form – I’m conversely encouraged by the type of films which Moviola does offer for those audiences who wish to have those more difficult conversations and are willing to confront subjects in a similar manner to myself. (Pic to left is THE LAST TREE offered by Moviola last season).

 

I’m incredibly proud to see titles which reflect all walks of British life in Moviola’s menus, and with that spirit in mind – here are some of my recommendations that you can research further (and hopefully watch) which I think are DEFINITELY worth your time.

LUCE – based on a stage play, the story of the same name with rising star Kelvin Harrison Jr as a boy who is adopted by a white American family who then have doubts about his intentions as an adult. 

Available to rent from £3.49 on Google Play, Amazon and YouTube.

LA HAINE – Matthieu Kassovitz’s 1995 ground-breaking French drama of bored youths from all backgrounds in the rundown French banlieues. It’s an exciting film that shook up the French establishment, and some may argue nothing has changed in the past 25 years, but it gave visibility to young people in France who found themselves in a rigged game, determined to keep them in their place.

Currently available on Sky Store, Rakuten TV and the Microsoft Store.

THE 13th –  From director Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle In Time),  comes this powerful and balanced documentary which seeks to inform the viewer through each presidential reign about the 13th amendment   – a law formed in 1865 which abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for conviction of a crime. A damning (and surprisingly balanced) exploration of how this law has been manipulated over the ages.

Available through Netflix only.

 

 

And that’s the lot!

I will save my forays into cross-stitching for another day.

I wish you all the very best – stay safe and do drop a line to me or call if you ever want a chat about your cinemas or films. I’m available Mon-Fri during office hours and will always get back to you!”

 

 

Vote For Week 6 of #MoviolaTogether

Vote For Week 6 of #MoviolaTogether

 #MoviolaTogether is a virtual opportunity to share and talk about films in the way we would all enjoy them at our local community cinema. We offer a selection of films to choose from, we then watch the winning film over a week and share our (good, bad indifferent) thoughts on the film through Moviola’s social media channels.

Week 5 saw Moviola audiences vote for the unlikely winner of Jonathan Glazer’s ex-pat gangster flick – Sexy Beast (2000)

We’ll be posting a summary of selected thoughts when we announce this week’s film on Friday afternoon from our Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp group.

We are choosing films that are readily available for free through YouTube, BBC iPlayer, All4 and other free platforms so that there is no expense for anyone who wishes to watch along.

This might mean that the film isn’t fresh out of the cinemas, but it also is a good opportunity to catch up with something that you may have missed over the last few years.

For June’s first week, we are picking eight films that we think will make you engage and explore the richness of cinema from the UK and further ashore. The voting form is at the bottom of the page.

Of course, there is nothing preventing you from watching them all – we think they’re all fantastic!

The shortlist is as follows

EDUCATING RITA (1983)

Michael Caine’s alcoholic mentor tries to school Julie Walters in the arts, but will he learn a thing or two about himself? Caine and Walters both won BAFTA and Golden Globe awards for best actor and actress. The British Film Institute ranked Educating Rita the 84th greatest British film of the 20th century.

GOOD VIBRATIONS (2013)

Set in 1970’s Belfast, can one man’s voice bring back the vibrant music scene to the city once more against the ongoing Troubles plaguing the country. With a jukebox soundtrack of rock and punk music, this exciting film showcases the talents of Dylan Moran, Jodie Whittaker and Richard Dormer.

BEAST (2017)

Starring Jessie Buckley – a face many of you will now be familiar with from Chernobyl and Moviola favourite, Wild Rose – this film tackles a mystery in a small village on the island of Jersey,  with two local young people caught up in the middle. With surprises and twists at every turn, Johnny Flynn (recently seen in 2020’s Emma) charms as a rogue local lad who whisks a young disillusioned lady off her feet. 

MADE IN DAGENHAM (2010)

A vibrant troupe starring the best of British, Sally Hawkins (Paddington, The Shape Of Water) shaking up the motor factory in which they work for better working conditions and pay. A cheerful and defiant stand for rights with a firm tongue in cheek and 1960s backdrop.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW (1985)

From stable of Merchant Ivory productions, this British classic made a household name of Helena Bonham-Carter as a young woman who falls for a free-spirited man in the beautiful countryside of Florence.

WHITE GOD (2015)

You could describe this one as a nightmare version of Disney’s 101 Dalmations – a young girl’s love for her pet dog and his journey from abduction back to his rightful owner – often lenses through the eyes of our intrepid pooch. Certainly a film that will stay with dog-lovers for many years!

ANOTHER MAN’S POISON (1951)

Based on the play Deadlock by Leslie Sands, Bette Davis plays a mystery writer whose fictions become reality when her long lost husband returns from the dead, upsetting her plans to continue her affair with his secretary’s fiance.

THE IMPOSTER (2012)

The incredible documentary on the real-life abduction of an American child in France. Three years later, the boy reappears in Spain and is taken back into the family with loving arms. The bizarre thing that anyone outside of the fold notices is that the boy now looks like an adult, has different eyes and even sports a new hair colour.

#MoviolaTogether Week 5 – Sexy Beast

#MoviolaTogether Week 5 – Sexy Beast

Welcome to Week 5 of #MoviolaTogether!

This week’s voting has turned up a surprise in SEXY BEAST (2000) as our film of the week!

You can find it here: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/sexy-beast

Please tell us your thoughts on the film and drop us a line on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp don’t forget to include the name of your local Moviola venue!

Last week’s film was THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT – the charming Ealing Studios film about a rebellious community coming together to save their beloved trainline from a bus replacement service (and don’t we all hate those?).

Helen B commented on Facebook:

 We really enjoyed this film and loved the fact it was so unsophisticated!
I have also just found out that we can still watch and catch up with the other films on the choices lists which is great.
Thank you and well done Moviola team!
.

Edwina from Orkney on WhatsApp:

 “Well, a bit of whimsey and of its time! Also wonderful to see the old cars, steam rollers and steam trains- evocative of that era. Love that everyone was so smartly dressed even when running down the hill for water! Not a tracksuit or builders bum in sight… Glad to see it though and enjoyed the implausibility of it all!    

SEXY BEAST has an unfortunate title that might put you off – but then again, many of the best films do (lest us forget films like Hideous Kinky or The Reader). 

This is a tough, but darkly comic film about a retired British gangster sunning himself on the Costa when an old face entices him to come back into the fold to do one last job.

 

Starring Ray Winstone, Amanda Redman & Sir Ben Kingsley – it features the crème de la crème of British actors at the turn of the millennium, and we think its captures the post-yuppie ex-pat era incredibly well – with its tongue firmly in its cheek. Whilst many people will know gritty Ray from adverts encouraging us to bet in between half-time breaks during football matches, some of you may be shocked to see Sir Ben deliver lines of dialogue that would make even our own mother blush. The director, Jonathan Glazer, has gone on to make a handful of films since including one of our favourites of the 21st Century Under The Skin.

So, to join in with #MoviolaTogether – simply watch the film and tell us your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp.

The director Jonathan Glazer seldom makes films, and since 2013, cinema fans have been awaiting his next instalment. You can see a strangely compelling short film – THE FALL –  he made last year and quietly sneaked onto the BBC iPlayer here.

Our Home Town – free National Lottery funded screening Friday 8th May

Our Home Town – free National Lottery funded screening Friday 8th May

If you’re stuck for some homegrown entertainment, we’ve been contacted by Ben Hartshorn about a lovely free screening event taking place on Friday 8th May 2020, via Youtube. The project was funded by The National Lottery’s Heritage Fund, enabling filmmakers to create films in their local area – in this case, Crewkerne in Somerset.

Ben says;

“Back in 2005, I managed a project at Crewkerne Museum that gave young people in the town the opportunity to make films about their local heritage and culture.

The outcome of this was 5 shorts films that together became ‘Our Home Town’, a DVD that won top prize in the Young People category of Heritage Heroes 2006, organised by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

HLF said at the time –

This project is both inter-generational and empowering; it shows young people taking control, steering and enjoying their project and taking an interest in their surroundings, the place where they live, their home town. To quote one of the young people ‘it made a boring place interesting’.

Now, 15 years later, I’ve finally put them on Crewkerne Museum’s YouTube channel and we’re showing them online for the first time, starting at 7.30pm on Friday 8 May.

I’d like to invite you to grab a bag of popcorn and join us!”

Planning Ahead with Moviola

Planning Ahead with Moviola

As we write this, the future of community cinemas might seem like a speck on the horizon yet to come into focus. Details of government guidance for public gatherings may not have been issued as of yet, but that does not stop community cinema organisers taking stock of their current offerings and assessing how that may be impacted in the future. As part of our remit to support our community venues, Moviola wants each cinema to be as successful as possible, but does that mean keeping calm and carrying on? Could your regular audiences be affected? Are there other audiences within your local community who could be encouraged to visit your venue for a regular film fix?

We realise that almost every community venue knows what is best for their cinema, after all, many of you have been running them for several years. While there is some downtime in our scheduled screenings, Moviola is offering 1-2-1 consultations via email or telephone to discuss how your cinema and plan for the future. This may not be a fully realised plan due to announcements yet to be made, but we firmly believe we can help one another using successful examples of best practices and industry.

We also want to hear from all of our venues about their success stories (and failures)  – whether that was a new ticketing system, type of film or a different approach completely.

 

Our communication & diversity officer, Neil, is still at hand to give advice and help you start putting a framework in place. He will then work with you to flesh the details out as time progresses, with new legislation and ideas of how community cinemas can incorporate them into their current setups.

We will help you look at all aspects of your community cinema – whether that’s help with marketing (setting up social media groups or adverts), planning your types of programming to give a rich mix of films that will grow and sustain your audiences, or even basic advice on facilities and showmanship to add that sparkle to your screenings.

To book a session – simply fill out the form and we’ll get in contact with you in due course.

#MoviolaTogether Week 4 – The Titfield Thunderbolt

#MoviolaTogether Week 4 – The Titfield Thunderbolt

We’ve made it to WEEK 4 of #MoviolaTogether!

Another vote by Moviola audiences has decreed that THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT is our film of the week!

(by an inch!)

You can find it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03mv97b/the-titfield-thunderbolt

Please tell us your thoughts on the film and drop us a line on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp don’t forget to include the name of your local Moviola venue!

Last week’s film was BRASSED OFF – a bitter-sweet tale of a small mining town’s toot to glory with its colliery band which brought together both young & old.

Philip Comer, Moviola’s Chairman, told us on Facebook:

Just love this film, and Pete Postlethwaite is just so good. Good performances all round and a good uplifting story (much needed just now) with a serious message as well. 5 stars for me.

Ursula on Facebook:

 “Watched it. Loved it. Again. Still miss Pete Postlethwaite. Such a good actor   

Edwina on WhatsApp:

 “Triumph of hope over adversity indeed and lovely to see it again and places in Saddleworth I am very familiar with. Good acting, scenery and music- though the professional musicians easily spotted! The cheeks had it! Glad to have a reason to see it again as I am not keen on seeing films for a second time really. Well recommended.   

THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT is nominally a success story of how a community rallies together to take on the adversaries that may threaten their tranquil lives and, indeed, their very existence! 

The wheels of industry may prefer to run on roads, but the village of Titfield have other ideas. A film filled with defiance and subterfuge  – can the plucky residence get to keep their beloved locomotive chugging along?

 

Although, at the time, THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT wasn’t as warmly embraced by the British public as previous Ealing Studios output, the film has enjoyed a resurgence in admiration that we can only speculate has increased since the privatisation of the railway system. Pitting buses vs trains may seem like two sides of the same coin fighting one another today, but we think there’s a slightly more romantic notion of a steam train pulling into a platform than the No.34 parking up at a bus stop.

To join in with #MoviolaTogether – simply watch the film and tell us your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or WhatsApp.

THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT is available on:
