Join the Independent Cinema Office for ID Screening Days 2023 – a hybrid event for cinemas and exhibitors of all kinds looking to strengthen their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Taking place online on Tuesday 26 September and in-person at Storyhouse, Chester on Thursday 28 September, ID Screening Days comprises preview screenings and curated sessions designed to make a lasting difference to who is included in the audience and workforce of UK film.

Building on data from our 2022 workforce exhibition survey and FAN 2018-2022, the ICO will address the lack of representation in our cinema audiences and workforce, especially in relation to disability, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic background. We’ll look at ways to combat barriers to entry and how to build meaningful support systems for cinema audiences and staff alike. We hope this event is a great space for having honest conversations, making new connections and building momentum for real change.
