Ed Vaizey, Toby Young, Stephen Woolley to launch community cinema for Shepherd's Bush homeless

On Thursday 27th January 2011, Open Cinema will be taking part in a special fundraising event for the St Stephen’s Film Club in Shepherd’s Bush – the newest addition to their nationwide network of community cinemas and one which I reported on here.

Organised and hosted by the St Stephen’s Film Club, this event will feature a panel debate o the question “Can cinema be an agent of change?”. Confirmed panelists include Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries; Oscar-nominated and BAFTA winning film producer Stephen Woolley, author and journalist Toby Young, and Christoph Warrack, founder and CEO of Open Cinema.

Tickets for the fundraiser are priced at £25, and include entry to the debate, canapés and drinks. All proceeds will go to the St Stephen’s Film Club, which plans to offer weekly film screenings and filmmaking projects for the local homeless and elderly communities in Shepherd’s Bush.
