The Painted Bird Virtual Cinema Release


Many Independent & Arthouse Cinemas have been closed across the UK for more than 150 days. Although some have been able to open their doors since July, some Arthouse venues in the UK who regularly show our films have still been unable to open, which means they are unable to screen The Painted Bird in their screens.

For those cinemas we have made it possible for them to screen The Painted Bird as a “Virtual Cinema Release”.

By watching The Painted Bird embedded on these cinema’s websites, or by clicking on the URL from the cinema domain to the Vimeo On Demand page, the film revenue generated from sales will be shared with the cinema venue.

The cinemas participating in the Virtual release are listed below, and will be screening from Friday 11 September until Thursday 8 October.


Cardiff; Chapter Arts Centre; Watch Here

Courtyard; Hereford; Watch Here

Dundee; DCA; Watch Here

Ipswich; Ipswich Film Theatre; Watch Here

Newcastle; Tyneside Cinema; Watch Here

Nottingham; Broadway; Watch Here

Penarth; Snowcat Cinema; Watch Here


The Painted Bird is also screening in selected cinemas and on selected digital platforms from 11 September 2020.  For further details.
