The Film Cooperative is a network of over 100 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.

The Watched

“The Watched,” written for the screen and directed by Ishana Night Shyamalan and based on the novel by A.M. Shine, follows Mina, a 28-year-old artist, who gets stranded in an expansive, untouched forest in western Ireland.

When Mina finds shelter, she unknowingly becomes trapped alongside three strangers who are watched and stalked by mysterious creatures each night. You can’t see them, but they see everything.

Horizon: An American Saga

“Horizon: An American Saga” explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won – and lost – through the blood, sweat and tears of many.  Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Costner’s ambitious cinematic adventure will take audiences on an emotional journey across a country at war with itself, experienced through the lens of families, friends and foes all attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America…

Recent Campaigns



Bringing together the best of UK independent exhibition and delivering over 12 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 8 circuits –  Cinemas Online, ReelMerlin, Scott, Picturedrome, WTW, Savoy and The Arc Cinema – and over 100 cinemas from urban venues such as PeckhamPlex through to smaller venues like Moviestarr, Chiswick Cinema and The Pavilion Galashiels.


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 10 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!
