Cinema For All Glasgow Film
Glasgow Film Theatre,
12 Rose Street, G3 6RB
‘Cinema For All’ was created as a motto for Glasgow Film Theatre in the late 1980s when the second screen was being developed. The tagline still sits under the outdoor canopy and on the mosaic in the foyer. It has always been a worthy ambition – but what does it actually mean for the organisation and the people of Glasgow?
As a third screen is introduced at GFT, the ‘For All’ motto is being revisited and used as a catalyst for moving forward. The aim is to consider the idea of ‘For All’ within the context of equalities; to look at how the GFT contributes to a fairer, more inclusive society; also to examine what diversity looks like today and how can this be reflected in cinema?
How can you contribute?
Each week a new piece of writing will be published. At the same time, a member of GFT staff will ask an open question inspired by that text. You can answer the question online via the Blog, through Twitter (#filmforall) or Facebook, or by using the post-it notes in GFT’s foyer. We will collect everyone’s ideas and use them in the next phase of the process. There is also an opportunity to take part in a creative conversation about the work published.
Think big! We want to know what really matters to you as an individual. What do cinema and community mean to you? How do you think cinema can contribute to a fairer society? We need your views, ideas, creativity and debate. If you want to share your thoughts or ideas in more depth, you are welcome to write to us at Emily Munro (Head of Learning), GFT, 12 Rose Street, Glasgow G3 6RB, or to Emily
The texts will be published weekly online and will also be available to download.
Creative conversations with Alison Irvine
If you would like to have the chance for your ideas to be woven into a story about Glasgow Film and its audiences, please email with a brief explanation of why you wish to take part. Places are limited. Please note that the conversation will be recorded and what you say may be used to create a piece of fiction.
The workshop will take place in September in the city centre on a weekday evening.
Printed versions of the texts, including large print, are available in the foyer. If you know someone who would like to contribute who is unable to read or write, please let us know and we will find an appropriate way to include them.
