The Movie Memories Legacy


With the help of the Untold Motion Picture Company, we have created a short film which tells the story of the Movie Memories journey, since its launch in October 2017, and encapsulates what we have been able to achieve with funding from Life Changes Trust. Featuring members of the Movie Memories team along with memories from monthly events and a chance to see what Movie Memories looks like inside GFT.

From inception, Movie Memories was awarded three-years of funding from Life Changes Trust. This funding comes to an end on 31 March. The Movie Memories team and GFT would like to say a huge thank you to the Life Changes Trust team for their commitment to and support of this programme which has helped us transform the way that people affected by dementia access cinema in Glasgow.

We are happy to announce that from April 2022, Movie Memories will be funded for 12 months by the GCVS Glasgow Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. This funding supports approximately 50% of the costs involved in this project. If you would like to help support Movie Memories with a donation please contact development@glasgowfilm.org to find out more or make a donation here.

New research by HammondCare has revealed that Movie Memories has a significant impact in supporting people living with dementia and their carers. For every £1 of investment in Movie Memories, the social value contribution of the programme is estimated to be £4.74.
