Help Reading Film Theatre Celebrate our 50th year

Enter our competition to redesigning our logo and be in with a chance to win  a classic membership of Reading Film Theatre for a year

The Reading Film Theatre is Reading’s only independent film cinema, showing a range of art-house, foreign language and independent films as well as the occasional mainstream blockbuster.   In 2020 we are proud to be celebrating our 50th year.  The RFT began as a joint project between the British Film Institute and the University of Reading. It is now a registered charity and operates with the help of around 50 volunteers who sit on the management committee, manage the marketing, publicity and fundraising as well as operating the box office and carrying out usher duties at screenings. The president of the RFT is Sir Kenneth Branagh and our patron is film director Peter Strickland, who was a volunteer at RFT during his days as a student at the University. In the words of our president ‘Independent cinema is vital to the cultural life of the town and I am pleased to be President of the cinema, which provides opportunities for people to see films that otherwise would not be shown in Reading” Sir Kenneth Branagh.

This is your opportunity to win free Classic Membership of the RFT for a year. Use your creativity to redesign our logo to mark the 50th anniversary. The logo design may be submitted as a hard copy A5 size or in digital form no smaller than 50mm x 50mm at 300dpi. (It can be bigger as we can scale it down).  It should make clear that we are celebrating 50 years of film and should be able to be combined with our existing logo which is shown above or be placed next to it.
