QFT50 outreach project


To celebrate the milestone of becoming 50 this year, QFT worked with three over 60's community groups whose participants have shared their memories  of the films they have seen and experiences of cinema going they have had over the last 50 years.  The project participants created 6 trailers of their favourite films, along with a posters exhibition currently on display in QFT's foyer until 2nd July 2018.

Pictured below is one of their favourite films that was screened in May at QFT at the end of project showcase, Driving Miss Daisy, curated by the project participants.
