    A whole Radio 4 season of programmes devoted to film will run across a fortnight in January. One of its themes will be the connection of film to our lives, our histories and communities.

    Recently, at the Film Programme we’ve heard about an astounding growth in groups of people getting together to watch films locally. So in the weeks leading up to this season, we’d love to hear from you about specific places and people who make that grass-roots film experience possible – and then we can hear from them: an audio ‘snapshot’ of some of the most lively and memorable places to watch film around the country.

    We want to hear about your local film heroes… And soon. So we can get out to visit you, we need suggestions by October 14.
