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.

Campaign 1

“Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”

Forthcoming Campaign

In PETER RABBIT™ 2, the lovable rogue is back. Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can’t seem to shake his mischievous reputation. Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated, but when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be.

Campaign 2

Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence.

Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realise that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

Recent Campaigns



Bringing together the best of UK independent exhibition and delivering over 17 million ad impressions per month.

The network allows distributor advertisers to increase awareness at point of ticket purchase with ads that link directly to booking. It also gives film interested brands access to a quality committed cinema audience.

We represent 9 circuits – Cinemas Online,  Empire, ReelMerlin, Scott, Picturedrome, WTW, Savoy and The Light – and over 120 cinemas from large urban powerhouses such as Odyssey Belfast through to smaller venues like Loewen Mablethorpe and Rex Elland.


We fully understand the difficulties in reaching the fragmented independent exhibition sector. We, however, are in constant contact with our cinemas so we are in a position to negotiate many added-value features such as free newsletter inclusions, editorial coverage and featured trailers in addition to low-cost but highly-targeted ad campaigns.


We work closely with Onscreen magazine, the leading film magazine for independent cinema.  Onscreen covers many of the same cinemas so you can get your ads into print as well as online.

  • Published bi-monthly
  • Print run 100,000 per issue
  • 70+ cinemas covered

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.


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