Outdoor Screening Events

Apply for licence

Consider an outdoor film screening as part of your entertainment programme this summer!

Outdoor screenings are a great way to bring communities together to enjoy film and can offer excellent fundraising opportunities through charging audiences a ticket price for viewings.

The Outdoor market is one of the biggest growth sectors for Filmbankmedia, with customers typically screening 'early release' (pre-DVD) and cult titles to attract audiences.

Outdoor screenings are most commonly held in environments including festivals, public spaces, gardens, marquees, car parks, patios and on terraces.
