The Nottingham Alternative Film Network is run by a passionate team of volunteers who have a real love for film and all things artistic. If that sounds like you, you could join the team too!
In 2015, the Nottingham Alternative Film Network was set up with three main objectives:
1. The first was to bring great films from around the world to Nottingham; films which would otherwise be unavailable, because they are either overlooked by UK distributors or only screened in London.
2. Secondly, we wanted to create an environment in Nottingham where young people can get paid arts work experience and training through third parties, preparing them to enter the film industry.
3. Our third key objective was to make film events more accessible for, and representative of, people in Nottingham who are underrepresented by the industry. We want to demonstrate film’s power to do good for the community!
In implementing these objectives, we hope to nurture a stronger culture of appreciating film in all its forms in Nottingham. We hope that ultimately this will make Nottingham an important centre for increased representation and change within the film industry.
