Description

AFS would like to broaden its Committee membership to enhance our skillset and capacity to develop as a community organisation. We are interested in people who have a keen interest in a broad range of film and who will bring professional and life skills which would assist the Society to develop. There is an immediate need for a Committee Minutes Secretary and other roles might include: taking a lead in communications and marketing; fundraising or sponsorship and grant applications; developing links with other community organisations and in growing our audience numbers and diversity.

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.

Restrictions

Experience required: A Committee role requires an interest in a broad range of film. AFS is always keen to have committee members who can bring experience or professional skills in the areas above to strengthen our team, future proof the Society and develop the Society’s contribution to Ayr life.
Travel details: Post paid travel expenses are covered

Support

Training details: Through membership of Cinema for All, AFS has access to training courses, usually web-based, in all aspects of running a community cinema which could be available and of interest to volunteers. These courses are scheduled by CFA and are not available on-demand.
