Open Cinema

Founder & Chief Executive

Met with David Giampaolo


OPEN CINEMA is a film studio for excluded communities.

We coordinate an international network of community cinemas, a range of participatory filmmaking programmes, and make films for organisations advocating on issues of social or environmental importance.

Since 2009 we have launched 34 film clubs in some of the most challenged communities in the UK and Ireland. These have welcomed almost 14,000 individual admissions, over 18,000 volunteer-hours, and received almost 200 experts from the film industry, from universities and companies in a dynamic range of fields. The filmmaking programmes have now produced 56 participatory and advocacy films.
