Outdoor Screening Events

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 a 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 'special 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.


The STSL is available for outdoor screenings on a Commercial (where you may charge audiences a ticket price) and Non-Commercial (where your screening is free for audiences to view) basis.
