ABOUT US

ONE STOP ACCESS TO OVER 120 CINEMA WEBSITES

The Film Cooperative is a network of over 120 independent cinema websites. It offers distributors the opportunity to promote their films in most prominent positions, using sales-driving ads that link directly to booking. Film and lifestyle orientated brands use the network to cost-effectively reach a highly engaged online film audience.

The ads and trailers on this page are for recent campaigns that we have run or will be running shortly. In addition to running the advertising we can also act as a single point of access to these cinemas for distributing trailers, social media assets and leveraging added-value coverage for films and brands.

SUPPORTING CINEMA WEBSITES

The Film Cooperative was set up over 5 years ago to provide cinema websites with an additional online revenue stream to complement their onscreen and in-foyer ad revenue.  It provides quality brand ads from market leading suppliers and also higher value campaigns from distributors and film or lifestyle orientated brands who are happy to pay a premium for reaching a known cinema-going audience in a high quality environment.

Unlike most ad serving solutions we are not a faceless algorithm. We have humans to help you implement our service or to talk to in the unlikely event that you have a query.  We are very easy to deal with and offer prompt and regular payment.

NEW CINEMA WEBSITES ARE WELCOME

We’re always looking for new cinema exhibitors to join the network – the bigger we are the better we can be!
