Want To Screen A Film Yourself?
Torbay Film Club is looking to support community groups who would like to screen films at special events. We can offer excellent audio-visual projection equipment, support and advice at a greatly subsidised rate.
We've worked with Torbay Care Trust, a learning disability charity and other fledgling film clubs such as Follaton in Totnes.
In return, we’d like to raise our own profile in the Bay and have the opportunity to work in partnership with other Torbay community groups. For more info, please fill in the form on the Equipment Hire page
