Re: Happy 2019

Happy New Year to all Forum-friends. Actually, there are not many. Yes, we are in decline, Ken. But not my club. Everybody has paid his membership anno 2019! Up to now I have not renewed my IAC-membership. The reason: I have not received my new card yet. Unless I have made a mistake or I've done so...

Re: Val Ellis tribute film

Sorry, your name, Richard, is Scarsbrook. My apologies. And also my apologies to Frank Parker who produced this lovely film together with David Andrew. Both members of the Cheadle and Gatley Film Makers.

Re: Val Ellis tribute film

Many thanks, Richard Swarsbrook and David Andrew. This was quite a surprise! It was really a very moving picture tribute to a fantastic lady. It was quite an honour to have had chats with Valrie at BIAFFs and also at Guernsey Lily Film Festivals, with the first lady president of the IAC who travelle...

Re: "Will 'Ye Go to Flanders" screened to commemorate the end of WWI

Hello Tim, Could you pass me your address? (by Messenger?) I will send to you : "Will Ye Go to Flanders?" and "On the Road to Passchendaele". They are not on Youtube. Perhaps they are my best movies. You can find a "The Making of..."article about both documentaries on the IAC-website. Some IAC-frien...

"Will 'Ye Go to Flanders" screened to commemorate the end of WWI

On 4th November my documentary "Will Ye Go to Flanders?" (5 stars at BIAFF) was shown in a room of the transit camp of Breendonk. After my film had been screened a choir sang songs about the First World War. A wreath was laid at a war monument. There was an exhibition and a reception. To be honest I...

Re: Freddy Beard FACI

This is very sad. Last time when I met her was at UNICA in Dortmund last year. She was always very friendly. I thought of seeing her again at SERIAC in April, but I missed it. Indeed, it is quite a shock!

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Hello Michael, I will attend SERIAC on 12th May in Tonbridge. It would be great to meet you again. I know Tonbridge very well. Actually it is not so far from us. I will also meet some friends there like Ron and Joy Prosser, David Fenn and other Haywards Heath Movie Makers who helped me with sound re...

Re: BIAFF 2018

My wife and I have decided not to come. We didn't come last year either because BIAFF didn't take place the second weekend of April which was unusal. That's why I went to Romney Marsh in Kent. I had promised English friends to film a dance group on St. George's Day. Harrogate Why not Harrogate? Beca...

Re: Val Ellis

She was a fantastic lady. I loved her speeches at the BIAFF gala dinners when she was president of the IAC. I loved her sense of humour. She was so friendly! She was always very positive! Ken Wilson and I received the diploma of "Master Movie Maker Fellowship" from her at Royal Tunbridge Wells in 20...
