The first Local Cinema programme supporting community cinema screenings around Edinburgh took place across seven community hubs in the autumn/winter of 2023 and the start of 2024. You can view the list of screenings that took place on the programme below, with links to the participating hubs.
The Local Cinema film programme has been funded by the City of Edinburgh Council via the Creative Community Hubs Network, which brings together eight building-based hubs who are engaging with their local communities in creative ways across Edinburgh. Local Cinema was the first shared creative programme produced by the hubs network to date, and we are excited that it will return in 2024/25. Please contact Morvern Cunningham if you’re interested in screenings via firstname.lastname@example.org
Tish was screened at Craigmillar Now on 18th December 2023, as part of the Local Cinema programme. Tish is a portrait of the visionary photographer Tish Murtha, who was committed to documenting the struggle and inequality of the working-class communities that framed her upbringing.
