Through running regular screenings and proving a need Screen Tiree applied to the BFI Neighbourhood Fund and were successful in a bid for new equipment. Without the BFI Neighbourhood Fund they would not have developed their screenings from the Film Club to Into Film to our community cinema, Screen Tiree. Through setting up Community Cinema they have formed a committee which includes two young people, one aged 11 and one aged 24 years old. The Film Club runs as well as screening family films through the community cinema and there are plans to develop these further by forming a group of young film programmers to take ownership of Film Club. The cinema has moved from the Rural Centre to the community hall, An Talla, which is much more accessible and comfortable. Becoming a Community Cinema enabled them to join Film Hub Scotland and received support from them, including funding to start a group of Young Film Programmers and support to take part in training and networking.
