Re: BIAFF 2016 - WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR RESULTS?

Well Done Howard!

I didn't enter anything this year, so i can relax! Although, having been one of the judges this year, i'm always interested to hear what people think of the judges comments.

Re: Article on IAC

My Blu-Ray player has a USB Slot in the front, as well as being WiFi enabled so i can stream media from my Network to it. I quite often show my films on my lovely 55 inch LCD TV via a USB stick. :)

Re: Music videos

Perhaps there should be a top award for each genre rather than "best of show". Perhaps there should, Ned. But then we get the counter argument that films which don't neatly fit into pigeonholes can't be fairly judged. If you gave the submitter the genres to choose from on the entry form, ...

Re: Article on IAC

Hi Michael. I'm only really talking from an alternative 'option' point of view. I'm a huge Hard Media fan (you should see my Blu-Ray collection!) and i'm quite adverse to streaming and buying online content... but, when it comes to sharing my own movies with others... online/streaming is by far the ...

Re: Article on IAC

I liked your article, and don't see what people would be offended by. Getting on to the young audience debate, this is something i've tried to do for a very long time! I'm sure if you browse these forums you'll see comments of mine championing the need for newer blood, and newer directions. I've bee...

Re: Pay Per View

Well... i've done it. 'Selfie' is now online via a Pay Per View site. Will see how it goes and update this forum after a month or so. Since i posted it, i had 2 rentals pretty much straight away, but i did shout about it all over Facebook and Twitter! Time will tell if it's something worth doing or ...

Re: BIAFF - the Festival

It was the father's call that really hit the message home for me, it was at that point that i could feel the lump in my throat growing. Not many films hit me emotionally, but that one knocked me for six. :)

But you are right Tim in that films affect people in many different ways.

Re: BIAFF - the Festival

Thanks for the comments on 'Selfie' all. Really pleased it went down so well. I almost didn't enter it to be honest, being a horror i thought it wouldn't be well received at this festival... how wrong was I!? I only came for the Sunday, and my favourite films were 'Arefi Der Hirte' and 'Fall'. I tho...

Re: Pay Per View

No problem Willy. :) I've remembered the film that first brought this question up. It was a Diamond winning film called 'Rex', the makers were selling copies online to try and recoup some of their costs. It was discussed somewhere in these forums. I don't remember the outcome, but i do remember that...

Re: Pay Per View

It would be interesting to know how many of the films entered into BIAFF were completely self-funded, or had monies coming in from grants/sponsorships/crowd-funding campaigns etc? How many would not be eligible for entry if that clause applied?
