Independent Cinema Milton Keynes (ICMK)
Independent Cinema MK brings a wider variety of film to a wider variety of people in the city.
ICMK is based at MK Gallery in Central Milton Keynes developing the Friday Night Film Programme, its outreach and education projects.
We have two key priorities:
Audience and Programme Development
Encouraging and Supporting Filmmaking Talent
The Vagabond Cinema project encapsulates the spirit, determination and creative energy of Independent Cinema MK. Vagabond uses unusual spaces to screen films; working with organisations and communities to create individually tailored events, which have stimulated regular film programme activity. In 2009 MK Community Foundation kindly seed-funded the project, leading to some significant outcomes for Milton Keynes.This year ICMK recorded 3936 attendances at events, screened 96 films across Milton Keynes with 33 artists, filmmakers and musicians, 14 groups and 52 volunteers.
Great War MK: From Conflict to Cosmopolis
In 2015, ICMK are embarking on a special project working with arts and heritage organisations across Milton Keynes to commemorate WW1.
ICMK will be working with schools, making new animations working with animator Rachel Wright. The films created will be shown in schools and in communities in Milton Keynes alongside early silent films, Archive footage and films dealing with the subject of war.
‘Great War MK - From Conflict to Cosmopolis‘ is a collaborative project led by the Arts & Heritage Alliance Milton Keynes (AHA-MK). It explores the impact of the First World War on the communities of Milton Keynes – an area now covering six towns, 41 villages and 1/4 million people – and examines their evolution from a time of conflict to that of cosmopolitan opportunities.
This Heritage Lottery funded project enables partners from the AHA-MK membership collectively to celebrate not only the stories from 100 years ago but also their legacy for modern Milton Keynes. Our aim is to inspire active participation amongst both native and new communities in Milton Keynes – in interviews, workshops and creative activities. Great War MK will generate film screenings, performances and exhibitions, all of which will give fresh insights into the turmoil – and creativity – of those times.
You can keep up-to-date with what is going on via the Great War MK blog where we will be uploading images, updates and event details and you can buy tickets to events here: eventsmk.ticketsource.co.uk. Updates will also be available on Twitter using #GreatWarMK. For more information or details of how to get involved please visit the AHA-MK website and use our contact form.
