PLAN YOUR DAYS AT BIAFF The timetable for the BIAFF film presentations is now online at http://www.biaff.org.uk - look under the "2018 festival" menu.

Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Glug, glug! We can try to find a time to meet either in the bar or in the conservatory area by the front door of the hotel. When the timetable is announced we can agree a time.
