Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend and apart from a minor hiccup on the Friday night when my Wi Fi threw a wobbly and temporarily cut off my connection to Zoom it all went very well indeed. The picture quality on my home cinema screen was exceptional and once I'd got the audio feeding into the b...

Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

I've registered and am looking forward to it. As I've mentioned on another post I'm going to hook up my lap top to my projector so I can view the films on my home cinema screen. At XDL films we were delighted to learn that our entry "Marvin" is being shown on the Saturday and we were invited by Davi...

Re: UNICA 2020

Unfortunately I missed the first 20 minutes of the presentation because I hadn't taken account of the one hour time difference, making it a 7pm start for the UK rather than 8pm. Luckily I realised my mistake early enough to see most of it and was then able to watch some of the films. I'm now looking...

Re: Anyone out there?

I'm still here! Re Michael's comments about being required to sign an indemnity for the screening of his films on TV I came up against the same issue a couple of years ago when I was approached by a TV production company who wanted to use material from an old film from the archive of my former club ...

Re: BIAFF 2020 RESULTS

I'm hoping to be at BIAFF in October but there is so much confusion and uncertainty at the moment that it's anyone's guess if it can go ahead. At the moment in Scotland we are not supposed to travel outside a 5 mile radius of our homes though this is advisory, rather than mandatory. However it effec...

Re: COVID-19

Fortunately we have the internet and ways of keeping in touch. At Motherwell Photographic Society we have cancelled our meetings but still had one print competition to run so what we decided to do was get the members to make digital images from the original files of the prints they would have entere...

Re: Are we ready for an "Upright Film Contest"?

There was a film in BIAFF 2018 that had been shot in the portrait format. From memory I think it was called "Girl" and was awarded 4 stars.

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

At XDL Films our main entry for BIAFF, "Whodundidit", has been awarded 4 stars with which we are very pleased and we are also delighted that it is being shown on the Saturday. Our other film was a one minute story called "The Anniversary" that only received two stars, primarily due to some technical...

Re: Paul Kittel Documentary Sunday 28th October 2018

I would like to echo Tim's comments about Paul Kittel. I found his presentation at the AGM weekend to be both interesting and inspiring and I returned home feeling sufficiently encouraged to get back to making some personal films again, after a year or so in the doldrums. I watched Paul's programme ...

Re: Film Music

I've seen that series on the history of music for Cinema Tim and I agree that it is excellent. I'd already spotted Mark Kermode's new series so that is definitely on my "must watch" list
