Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

UNICA used Vimeo Showcase system to present its films this year. You needed to enroll in advance to be given the password, but once there you could watch the films at your leisure over most of a week. I am also one of those awkward people who like to slip in and our of mini-cinemas, to avoid films I...

BIAFF ONLINE ...

So the announcement has been made. There will be no traditional BIAFF this year. It will all take place online. The Online UNICA worked better than I feared - and some of you saw it. We will probably all miss the personal contacts, the dash for tea-and-biscuits between shows ... the buzz of a live o...

Re: Anyone out there?

Thanks (!) to Covid there was no UNICA Festival and competition this year ... BUT 11 countries contributed 20-minute film programmes to share online in a non-competitive presentation. They have been online for several days but if you are very quick you may see them: https://vimeo.com/showcase/745037...

Re: Website providers

My recommendation is Weebly. It is free - though as is often the case they sometimes tempt you to buy a more advanced system. It does not add advertisements to your website as some free services do. It asks only for a mention of its name in the page footnote. You get a free domain which includes the...

Re: Jameela

My least favourite term for what we do is "unprofessional filming" - which is used in parts of Eastern Europe. "Non-professional" is bad enough! The one I usually use outside Britain is Ned Cordery's suggestion of "non-commercial". Instinctively I do not like a negative definition. I don't want to b...

Re: Jameela

It would be a pity to lose the perspective you bring, Ned. We are all too insular in Britain. Please keep contributing on these ideas.

As for social media ... I find my own Facebook and Twitter feeds remarkably quiet. Is it because with so little happening, there is less to discuss?

Re: Jameela

The job of a committee is not to meet, its job is to get things done. There are indeed IAC Council members who have been there for many years, some for many decades, and who do not now contribute in terms of actual work. They may have helpful experience and advice, but that is not enough. I suspect ...

Re: BIAFF 2020 RESULTS

Who knows? The pundits keep giving different information and various medical friends keep saying life cannot really start getting back to normal until a reliable vaccine has been created and is widely available. In the meantime you can find many of the films in most star categories online at YouTube...

Re: BIAFF 2020 RESULTS

Who plans to come to BIAFF in October? This is a matter of concern, because though there are floods of entries in the competition, the number of people attending BIAFF has been declining. Obviously a certain amount of guesswork is needed. None of us knows when the restrictions on public life will be...

Re: UNICA 2021

It was pointed out to me that the posts from here on were more about the future of the IAC than about UNICA 2021 ... so to avoid confusion I have split them into to threads. This one will continue on the theme of UNICA2021 A new topic "Re-think the IAC" takes thoughts on that topic. Nothing is lost!...

Re-think the IAC?

The topic "UNICA 2021" started to slip - naturally perhaps - into discussion about the IAC's future. Thanks - for a suggestion that it might be helpful to separate the two to make it easy for newcomers to see what they want to. I started this thread with Ned Cordery's reaction to the "UNICA 2021" to...
