Forest Row Film Society has received an award at the national Film Society of the Year Awards ceremony at the magnificent Cutlers’ Hall in the heart of Sheffield. Organised by The British Federation of Film Societies (BFFS) as part of last weekend’s National Conference for Film Societies and Community Cinemas, this is a significant recognition of the society’s activities in the provision of community cinema in Forest Row.

Receiving the prize in the best website category on behalf of Forest Row Film Society, Brad Scott commented “About six years ago the society was on the verge of closing; since then we have managed to increase our audience considerably, and extended the range of our programming. We have also raised £13,000 for new digital equipment, which will mean we can reach out to other parts of the community as well. This award provides great support for our activities.”
