Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Bob Lorrimer says that if FVM was online it would have a much higher readership. I imagine this would only happen if it was not in a ‘members only’ area? If the magazine was available to the public would this increase the membership of the IAC? Bob is right that putting our films online is a way of ...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Is the IAC fulfilling the needs of current members? Ned has asked what IAC membership has to offer. Two members of my club have given up their membership this year. I don’t know exactly why, but it does make me wonder what benefits they are relinquishing? In principle these two ex-members can still...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

In answer to Jameela's question "Which way do we desire the IAC to evolve?" I would like to say that I'd like the IAC to stick with BIAFF. If it was realistic for the council to put on a non-competitive festival as well, that would be wonderful! But I know that there are only a few people who give t...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

The word ‘hobby’ Jameela, I am not sure whether you are saying that the word ‘hobby’ is off-putting to younger people because they may not understand its meaning, or whether you are also saying that anyone who has filmmaking as a hobby can’t be a serious filmmaker? I agree with you that the use of ...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Jameela, I read your piece with interest, and I think you raise some important issues. Workshops – I wish the IAC would put on practical workshops about filmmaking. Workshops where we could get together to learn the art and craft of filmmaking from experienced professionals. Working together – I sup...

Re: Mermaid & mini Mermaid

Stoke Cine and Video Society joined CEMRIAC when their region folded. And I believe some of them have joined as individual members of CEMRIAC.
I wonder whether your club could approach the IAC and see whether it and/or its members could do the same?

Re: No film about Highland Games! Bad luck again!

Well done, Willy, for making the most of what was available to you! It must have been SO disappointing!
Unless I'm really thirsty, I think I'd go for Laphroaig rather than diet coke! :D

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

I thought it was a cracking BIAFF weekend. Yes! I agree with Michael that it was the best ever. Efficient, smooth organisation. Excellent projection. The Crescent was a WONDERFUL venue. And I saw masses of films that I enjoyed and many really inspirational ones. Tom's post is excellent! Very interes...

Re: First film i ever made

Thanks for putting on links to those early films, Jon. It's very interesting to see them...and now I am even more impatient to see your Diamond Award winning film at BIAFF. I particularly enjoyed "An Hour's Sleep". I was completely caught up in the story. Really routing for the older guy. And the tw...

Welcome to the IAC Forum, Jon! I can't wait to see your film "Making Friends as the World Ends". I hope we'll meet at BIAFF - I'm from Birmingham too! :D

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Michael Slowe's films have always been a great inspiration to me. I remember the very first one I saw was called "Leader of the Pack". I was bowled over by it and desperately wanted to make something like that myself. My first effort at a 'Michael Slowe' type film was called "Johnny's Pigs". Michael...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

It seems that one of the images was not perfect. Perhaps that's right, but I don't know which one. That's a bit annoying. Willy, you've picked up one of the problems that recurs in judges' comments: making a statement/criticism which doesn't help the filmmaker to do better next time because it's to...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Bob...those comments weren't about one of my films! They were about a film made by someone at my club who had never made fiction film before.

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

How sad that BIAFF has lost entries from those members of Bob's club. I hope they haven't lost the confidence to make films? I completely understand why BIAFF means something to you, Bob. Actually I don't think any of us would bother to enter if it didn't mean something to us! And I also chime in wi...
