TALKIES NEEDS MORE FRIENDS!
Times are tight: Talkies is a volunteer-led, not for profit organisation, but we are finding funding from grants and sponsorships is in short supply. Our audience is brilliant at supporting us, but subscribing as a ‘Friend of Talkies’ would really help us to keep bringing great film events to your doorstep.
HOW WILL BECOMING A FRIEND HELP US IN 2018?
We hope with your support we can continue to be ambitious.
Friends’ investment will again be put towards commissioning and supporting young film makers. We are developing a strong reputation now for this programme and have supported 23 film makers over the past 5 years. As a Friend, there are also opportunities to get involved in film making: for example in 2018 some of us were film extras and runners!
Friends are also invited to special events and social occasions. So far these have included visits to BAFTA, Sands Studios, the Cinema Museum and a summer BBQ..
We hope you will join us!
