POUTFest 2015's intention is to build an audience for a regular, sustainable programme of LGBT material that also appeals to an audience outside of the niche. The aim is to bring alternative material to audiences who would otherwise not see it and to engage an entirely new audience that does not normally go to the cinema.
As you may know the tour has financial support from the BFI and media partnerships with GT, DIVA, QX and Ultimate Planet to publicise information on the tour across the UK through print, online and social media. POUTFest have a sizable budget to promote the screenings regionally and have teamed up with THINK JAM to maximise social media awareness outside of our own substantial reach.
We have funding to bring talent to you, or provide special introduction or skype Q&As. We also have funding to make local talent available to host screenings, events and/or discussions.
There are posters, booklets, trailers and clips all ready for use by cinemas, societies, film clubs and social groups.
They have compiled a considerable database of regional LGBT organisations and groups who can help promote the POUT programme to any area within the UK and will use this to aid the promotion of the tour as it moves around the country.
They have an army ready to promote the 2015 POUTfest tour and they’d love to get Hub venues and organisations behind it.
