OVFM Autumn Film Show 2019

One of the most important dates in the OVFM calendar is our annual Autumn Show where we share the fruits of our labours from a year of busy filmmaking, along with some gems from our archive with the public. As the nights are getting darker and colder you’ll need something to brighten them up so why not join us for another evening of films from the very best local amateur filmmaking talent.


This year’s event will take place on  FRIDAY 25th OCTOBER at 7:00 for 7.30 pm

VENUE –  Methodist Church, 19 Sevenoaks Road, Orpington BR6 9JH




Club members get in free but for guests and non-members the tickets are £5 – which includes refreshments – and are available by making a request via e-mail at or by telephone on 0208 3254454. Don’t leave it too late as they tend to get snapped up very quickly!

And of course there is our famous raffle where a selection of wonderful prizes are up for grabs provided you have that all important winning ticket!

  1. Having had very little to do with the planning and executing of the show, we can honestly say that our guests and ourselves really enjoyed an entertaining and very sociable evening.
    The ex mayor and her husband were bowled over by the Canadian friendship film and the way the film of the ceremony was interleaved with the other activities. She is planning to show it to the council and the British Legion and send it to the Canadians.
    In general, the atmosphere at the interval was buzzing.
    Well done to everybody involved.

  2. Thank you John and Ann. It is good to get feedback from these events to see whether we have got it right and to identify areas where we can improve.

    It was a risky strategy to stray away from the ‘norm’ for a show, but the feedback appears to justify the risk. I have received many positive comments, albeit not through this forum. It seems the general consensus was that this show entertained and engaged the audience in a way that made it thoroughly enjoyable to them.

    …. and of course, no show is possible without all the hard work of everyone involved, from those involved in the planning, selection and compilation of the films and all those involved in making the films, to those who prepared ahead of the evening, took on various roles and responsibilities, prepared programs, advertised the event, sold tickets, invited guests, came along themselves, set up all the various areas, served refreshments, selected prizes for the raffle, ran the raffle and for the huge yet smooth clear up operation at the end of the evening.

    The two compilations, Part 1 and Part 2 of the 2019 Autumn Show will be held by the archivist. As some of Mike’s films featured in the show but he was not well enough to attend, we gave him a copy to watch at his leisure. He thoroughly enjoyed it.
