EXPERTS IN FESTIVAL SUPPORT & VENUE CONVERSION
Film Mobile specialise in pop-up cinema, creating and managing showstopper screenings for special events and festivals in all kinds of places. We can transform unique locations into indoor or outdoor cinemas for a day, an evening or weeks on end. We have created spellbinding events in historic venues of all shapes and sizes including museums, abbeys and castles and brought the magical world of cinema into the heart of parks, gardens and public spaces.
Whatever the scale and scope of your event, our team have the in-depth expertise and technical back up to turn your vision into reality. You’ll be in safe hands and in good company. Film Mobile is already the partner of choice for many of the UK’s most famous and respected film festivals and events, including Edinburgh International Film Festival, Glasgow Film Festival, Sheffield Doc Fest, Leeds International Film Festival, Edinburgh Hogmanay Events, Assembly Events and Riverside Studios, and Edinburgh Festival Theatre.
We have worked with Film Mobile for the last two editions of the Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema – the first time with our milestone 5th anniversary and then again in March 2016. Ian and the team are fantastic. Our event requirements were exacting – not only did we need excellence in film presentation, live music and performance but the outdoor venue, on the platform of a heritage railway, had very particular constraints. All details were attended to, the partners and artists were delighted, and the audience had an A1 experience. When dealing with Film Mobile, communication is always prompt, helpful and knowledgeable and this, combined with their positive, ‘can do’ approach, and their reliability mean they are a pleasure to work with.
EIFF has worked with Film Mobile on a number of projects in recent years, including outdoor projection events at Summerhall, interior projections in our ’Scot:Lands’ project, and a major event at the National Musuem of Scotland in partnership with NMS and the UK Space Agency. Film Mobile work to a technically high standard and are consistently enthusiastic, reliable, and self-sufficient; they offer first-rate practical advice and support. Their extensive background in rigging and running cinema projection and sound across a wide range of settings – both in conventional cinema environments and in temporary or site-specific installations – gives them an excellent basis to handle ambitious screening projects. We look forward to working with Film Mobile again in future.
Glasgow Film Festival have been working with Film Mobile for a number of years and their professional attitude and presentation skills are exceptional. They have been instrumental in helping Glasgow Film Festival to grow and become one of the biggest film festivals in the UK. Whenever we have sought their help they have been with us 100% and helped us find innovative ways to bring great films to a wider audience. In short we really couldn't do the festival without them.
