We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of our brand new streaming service, Virtual Screening Room!

Filmbankmedia's Virtual Screening Room (VSR) is a service that allows the streaming of films to anywhere in the UK and allows film societies, community cinemas and other venues to replicate the experience of scheduled film screenings virtually. Our chat functionality allows you and your attendees to discuss the films you've just watched - even when you can't all be together in the same room. For more information please have a look at our VSR presentation.

We're pleased to offer some of the most acclaimed and important independent cinema around, as well as new titles like Viggo Mortensen's directorial debut, Falling (which he also wrote, produced, composed and played the music for) and British comedy-drama Schemers, winner of the Audience Award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, exclusive to Filmbankmedia a week before it becomes available on other services on the 25th January - giving you and your audiences the chance to see the film early!

You can check out all the titles available to view in our Virtual Screening Room here.
