Funding Body/Client: Awards For All/Lincoln Film Society

Goals: To encourage community cohesion and engagement in the arts

Blueprint helped Lincoln Film Society celebrate its 60th Anniversary by running a handful of events for its month-long 2013 film festival. Blueprint ran ‘Flix in the Stix’, which brought the cinema experience to rural villages surrounding Lincoln. We took classic films and projection equipment to village halls and schools to allow them to enjoy the festival at their doorstep.

We co-ordinated the grand finale of the festival, an outdoor screening of the classic musical Grease. Blueprint: Film Foundation’s workshop leaders made a short documentary with local children during the daytime which was shown before the feature and put up a green screen in the centre of the city to allow locals to step into the movies themselves. For the film screening a huge LED screen was hired and deck chairs set out so that Lincoln’s Corn Exchange could play host to a unique cinematic experience.
