How we started
After working for six years on a national project called Football Memories, which extended to cover other sports as well, we saw how beneficial these shared experiences were and started to look at how this could be developed using film memories.
During October 2015, our team piloted “Movies Memories” in several venues across Scotland, working alongside the national Luminate initiative. Sessions were held in Dumfries, Glasgow, Oban, Shetland, Eriskay and Arbroath. The format was similar in each venue.
Local people added to the event by bringing refreshments and making quizzes. The events were a success and there were several requests for more from groups keen to establish monthly events along these lines. The feedback from those who attended has been hugely supportive.
