Introducing Leigh Film...
Leigh Film Society is a not for profit organisation which is run entirely by Volunteers.
The society was founded in 2013 with a small but loyal following and our membership has steadily grown ever since. Our initial funding came primarily from the National Lottery. We later submitted an application for the British Film Institute (BFI) "Neighbourhood Cinema" scheme which led to us recieving a substantial equipment donation.
This enabled us to put on more professional screenings in a larger premises, for more people per screening. We are also active members of Film Hub North West and Cinema For All (formerly the British Federation of Film Societies), which has been representing the film society movement since 1925.
We are a group of film & movie enthusiasts who want to provide and share a community cinema experience. We want to inspire you with our film selections.
We aim to screen films that will not always be mainstream blockbusters. We want to push peoples film choice boundaries a little, offering a mix that includes classics, foreign language, art house and films that you've likely never even heard of. Don't worry though, we cover all genres...
Leigh Film society is a fully registered Community Interest Company or CIC and as such we have our Constitution, which is available to download here.
We take our role within the community very seriously and as such, we have in place a "Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy". This can be downloaded from the link below.
