Re: Judges reports

The work that judges do is invaluable in promoting our hobby. Judges in this area of the UK (the North East of England) are pretty cool ! They are very positive and enthusiastic without being condescending. As a competition secretary it is difficult sometimes to get judges (!) where have I heard tha...

HD at BIAFF 2010

The BIAFF 2010 Competition Rules state that only Blue Ray Discs are being accepted for HD entries.


Am I missing something here?

Does this mean that HD entries on DVtape or standard DVD will not be accepted?

Re: Should we circulate judges' comments?

Think this a great idea! Having done a spell of judging in the past, and as you say Dave I may make comments to a film maker that I would not want in the public domain would need some thought before publication. It would be great to see a selection of BIAFF films on this website with the judges comm...

Re: FVM latest Issue - amateur

I agree entirely with you on this one ned... When speaking to potential members (especially younger peeps) they do seem to wince when you mention the word amateur. It does have a certain stigma attached to it. This should not be taken as negative blow to all the fantastic work done by the likes of t...

Re: Projector Screens (again!)

Roy. I think you may have touched on something that has most certainly been lost over the years. I am far too young to remember the hey day of cinema days (ahem!) :roll: but do remember the atmosphere in the early 60's (as a boy) going to the saturday club at the ABC Ritz Gateshead or to see a big f...
