Find the best independent films with screeningfilm.com!
New website ScreeningFilm.com aims to support the independent film scene in Liverpool and at the same time give film fans an opportunity to explore films beyond the conventional cinema programme.

ScreeningFilm.com provides you, the film lover, with listings of alternative and independent film screenings in your area. An easy to use website, Screening Film is a platform for venues, promoters and organisations to show off their upcoming events so that you can easily locate film showings in your area.
The project has been developed by local artist Sam Meech of Re-Dock who has presented artworks as FACT as well as collaborating on community projects.
Sam has been able to work with Liverpool-based web-wizards interconnect/it to develop the site, thanks to an enterprise grant from Liverpool John Moores University.
He is keen for ScreeningFilm.com to be accessible for everyone - "the site is as much for families looking for affordable films on a weekend as it is for the horror aficionado or a socialist film club. Whether it's in a library, a bar, a university or even an actual cinema, there is something for everyone."
"As a fan of alternative film events in grass roots culture, I always felt there was a void when it comes to finding where these things are happening. My initial vision was to create a map to see the range of film events in one place. If I go to a new city I always look for the independent cinemas and film events taking place, and hopefully Screening Film will enable people visiting Liverpool to discover the variety of film events on offer."
The online mapping interface has been created by interconnect/it, who also developed the stunning Plaza Cinema website
"We're fans of independent cinema, so when Sam suggested the project we couldn't resist the challenge of revealing the broader film culture in Liverpool. We're really proud of Our mobile-first approach which means that the site is a really useful tool wherever you are."
Events already featured on the site range from a free matinée screening of Frozen in the amazing Victoria Gallery & Museum, to a French Romanian horror film in the Ship & Mitre pub, and even to a Jean Renoir classic at Edge Hill station.
Independent exhibitors can post their own film events, simply by registering and providing the information necessary. In this way we can all share the films we love, watch films we’d never have previously considered and support the local film scene from the grass roots up!
