Science Oxford Film Nights
To provide a low input event that would fill a regular slot in the Science Oxford calendar
Summary of activity:
We bought an umbrella film licence from MPLC (~£300p.a.), and used it to run a film night every month for a year. Each film was linked to our season theme, but the nature of the licence meant that we couldn’t show a lot of the films we wanted to.
Numbers on the door; Post event evaluation; Personal reflection.
What went well:
1: Star Wars got a nice number of people
2: The event was low input in that all we had to do was find the film
3: We got to watch some nice films
What was learned:
1: We needed to have developed the audience far better before we launched the series, and competition for this sort of activity is quite fierce.
2: See if there is a better solution than the MPLC umbrella licence (there may not be)
3: link films to talks, rather than just showing them as stand alone events.
