OVFM CLUB MEETING TUESDAY AUGUST 7th

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

For this week’s meeting we delve once more into the extensive OVFM archive to explore some of the fondly remember or long forgotten gems made during the club’s 60 year existence.

On this occasion, we have a set criteria for the selection of films that can be requested for viewing during this session. The above subtitle for this evening was inspired by the recent losses to OVFM of some of more prolific filmmakers and active club members, and it was felt that we should pay tribute to our fallen friends in the most appropriate way a film club can – by remembering them through their films.

So, club members are encouraged to take a look through our FILM ARCHIVES LISTINGS (this is in the private section so make sure you are logged in to access them) and pick out a film one of our departed members you’d like to see again, and please email your suggestion to our archivist Andy Watson.

Just a reminder of the some of the names you can seek out and choose films from or featuring an appearance by:

 

DEREK ALLEN

MIKE COAD

BASIL DOODY

FRANK HYDE

JENNY MORTON-ROBERTSON

PAT PALMER

JOHN RANSLEY

MIKE TURNER

FREDY BEARD

 

Hopefully older club members will also be able to nominate films and filmmakers dating back to the old OCS days way before I joined that I never knew.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to remember and celebrate the works of the many club members now gone whose contributions have kept OVFM alive for 60 years.

Thanks for reading and see you on Tuesday.

    Thanks Lee,
    The last day for receiving any film suggestions is tomorrow, Friday. After that day the list of films will be settled and it will be doubtful if I can include any more after that.
