To get Reel News delivered as high quality downloads by email, or straight to your door as a DVD every 2 months free of postage and packaging, take out a subscription for as little as £3 a month. The basic plan covers production costs. It does not cover the costs of producing the films and other expenses. If you can afford it, please choose one of the supporter plans if you are using PayPal. You can click here to download our standing order form. We have no corporate or mainstream funding and rely entirely on your contributions.
A number of trade union branches have already taken out subscriptions, so if you find the videos we’re producing useful, please put a motion through your branch or campaign group to subscribe. Trade union subscriptions come with a free screening license. If you would like us to come and present our films at an event, please get in touch.
Similarly, if you can afford to make a one off donation that will be gratefully received too. We need cash to buy equipment, to pay travel costs and screening costs, to buy materials and to pay our day to day living expenses.
Reel News is an activist video collective, set up to publicise and share information on inspirational campaigns and struggles – not just in this country, but across the world. We are doing this through producing a bi-monthly newsreel, made up of a number of videos short enough to use in union and campaign meetings.
Reel News will try and cover it all, from pensioners protesting against cuts in voluntary services, artists and musicians looking at the world in a different way,through strikes against privatisation, right up to the astonishing social movements in Latin America which have brought down governments through uprisings, mass direct action and general strikes.
Reel News is intended as a two-way resource, so let us know about your campaigns. Better still, film them yourself and send us the video. We can also be commissioned to make campaign videos, and offer help on camerawork, video editing and other skills needed to make your own video.
Reel News is completely independent and non-aligned. We are completely against sectarianism in all its forms, anti-capitalist in outlook, against the anti-trade union laws and in favour of mass collective action in the workplace and on the streets to change society.
Reel news is dependent on DVD sales and donations alone.You can help Reel News to survive by taking out a subscription online at reelnews.co.uk or making a monthly donation by standing order. Please note a monthly donation of £3 or more gives you free delivery of Reel News bi-monthly.
