Description

AFS depends on volunteers to run screenings each Thursday evening through our September to March season. These roles include: setting up reception desks and displays; ticketing and membership sales admin; ushering [this will be especially important on re-opening to ensure COVID restrictions are maintained and to assist people with where to sit and with the mandatory one-way flow system in place at the Town Hall]; and mandatory Fire Wardens.

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.
