Listen to today’s interview with Paul Vater on the popularity of film in the UK and in particular a focus on local cinema’s like ours.
There was also mention of our education project working in partnership with St Michaels, Aylsham High School and Norwich University for the Arts (NUA). More details of this project will be published soon. We hope you will get involved with this as much as possible.

We are in the process of programming the next six months of films at APH, and are excited about our Audience Choices. Some films have been suggested by audience members and one will be included in the next scheduled programme from September through to February 2017. To view the list under consideration, please go to Which Film ? – Audience Choice.
We look forward to seeing you at our first screening for 2016 – Friday 8 January. There is a great cast in “The Falling” including Maxine Peak, Maisie Williams, Florence Pugh and Greta Scacchi. Set in a girls’ public school in 1969, it concerns the friendship between the rebellious and beautiful Abbie (Pugh) and her less than worldly-wise companion Lydia (Williams).
Gradually, more and more secrets are revealed, and the back stories of girls, staff and Lydia’s mum Eileen (Peake) add extra spice to the mysteries.
As the fainting fits alluded to in this film’s title become increasingly widespread at the school, the girls’ behaviour becomes more extreme.
This film was written and directed by the incredibly talented Carol Morley in 2014.
We were thrilled with the turnout for our last film of 2015 “In love with Alma Cogan”. A near sell-out audience enjoyed a full evening of entertainment that began from doors opening at 6pm. Live music was provided by Jonathan and Delve for those arriving early to enjoy a festive drink of mulled wine, snacks and a fantastic raffle organised by Carol Wisby, of No5 Dress Agency in Red Lion Street.
FESTIVAL OF SHORT FILMS 2016
We sold raffle tickets for a fantastic £390 on the night and look forward to our next fundraiser in February 2016. All the funds raised will be used to finance our Festival of Short Films and Animation planned for July 2016. We will publish more details of this in the coming months and hope that as many of our supporters will get involved with this project that will bring together schools and colleges together with other generations of participants in Aylsham and its surrounding areas to learn about making short films using smart phone technology. People taking part will work with mentors from the film and TV industry as well as graduates and undergraduates from Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) leading to a screening of the best films at a celebration of film over the last weekend of July (29-31 July, 2016).

FILM SEASON 2016
We have now published the next set of films in our new season for 2016. Brochures for this have now been produced and will be distributed with the next edition of Just Aylsham. Films chosen include one chosen through our Audience Choice vote. Suggestions made by audiences at Aylsham Picture House in September, October and November 2015 were put to a vote in December and the winning film by far was Leviathan – a russian language film to be screened in March 2016.
