Involving partnerships between Cinemobile in Ireland and cinemas working in rural parts of Scotland, Iceland, Finland and Norway, this initiative is aimed at introducing independent European films to remote new audiences. The five countries that have come together are, as the title of the project suggests, on the edge of Europe and sparsely populated. In addition, all participants are experienced in the delivery of an existing outreach strand to their programme. This pilot project will bring them together in a Europe-wide context, promoting and providing access to shared resources and new distribution platforms, and thereby bringing European film titles to a non-core audience cost-effectively.
