  • Home-based volunteering


Do you love film? Fancy yourself a film critic? We are looking for someone to help develop a film oriented “Zine” and to build our subscriber base. AFS already produces an occasional eMagazine using Mailchimp – we are looking for a creative film lover to develop this format with new and engaging features with information about streaming films, online festivals, and links to film related content such as online interviews/Q&As, Film School conent, or comment pieces and reviews of interest to our audience and relevant to our forthcoming screenings at to help build our subscriber base. We know from audience surveys that email is a primary channel that our audience uses and we would like to grow the numbers of subscribers.

Organisation aims and objectives

Ayr Film Society is an award-winning community-led cinema which has been in existence since 1973. We are based in the heart of the community, at the Town Hall in the seaside town of Ayr. Ayr Film Society is a registered charity in Scotland. We are affiliated with Ayr Arts Guild, Cinema for All and Film Hub Scotland. AFS runs a main programme of screenings from Sept through to March/April, screening every Thursday evening at the Town Hall, Ayr. The Society is entirely volunteer run with a small management Committee. We wish to extend our use of volunteers to ensure a sustainable future for the Film Society, specifically to enhance our digital marketing, help run our screenings, grow our audience and extend our capacity to support local community groups and other community cinemas in South Ayrshire.
