In September 2019, Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling is piloting a new project called Into Film.
They will be working with the University of Stirling on a project designed to use film to support isolated students on campus.
The project aims to provide ten students an opportunity to see a film of their choice, once a week for ten weeks at Macrobert Arts Centre’s cinema.
After the film, there will be the chance to enjoy a bite to eat, and the chance to talk about the movie.
Recent research has shown that a monthly cultural experience can reduce the risk of depression in older people.
Inspired by this, Macrobert Arts Centre wanted to see how a weekly trip to the cinema can promote mental wellbeing in the student population.
Watch this space for an update in the autumn.
