“New York, London, Paris, Munich
Everybody talk about Pop Muzik”

Of course they really should be talking about the fact it is our annual January tradition of the OVFM Holiday Film evening!

When not stuck in front of our computers either scripting our next cinematic masterpiece or editing away at the countless hours of footage we have stored away on our cameras, some club members actually leave the house to explore the big wide world that is around us, camera in hand, naturally.

So it is that we invite members who have captured the sights and sounds of their getaway location for prosperity to cobble the footage together into a coherent narrative and share it with the rest of us, so we too can experience the wonders of that vast unknown quantity we call “abroad”.

Just to remind everyone that there is a FIVE MINUTE time limit on your film so if you have one that runs longer you may want to do some last minute pruning, although time permitting we can show leniency towards those that may exceed this boundary.

We also ask that if you are bringing a film that you PLEASE reply to this post in the comment section below, telling us the run time, format (DVD, blu-ray or Mini DV) and picture ratio (4:3 or 16:9) of your film. This is of tremendous help to our projectionist in timing the evening should we have a healthy supply of films to show.

Thank you for your co-operation and we look forward to seeing your films on Tuesday!


  1. I will bring one film for sure (although it is 7 minutes long);

    DVD, Aspect Ratio 4:3 SD

    Possibly another but will let you know before the evening

  2. Well, we had quite a few films to enjoy last night (although it seems the “five minute run time limit” was wilfully ignored), a mixture of old and new covering all corners of the globe.

    Bran Pfieffer and Andy “Elementary My Dear” Watson were the main contributors of the night with three films each being shown – “Yellowstone – The Missing Bits”, “Stop Over In Murmansk” and “Folklore In Murmansk” from Brian and “French Alps”, “Something I Always Wanted To Do” and “Cruising Milford Soup” from Andy.

    Jane Oliver shared two films with us – “When The Clouds Drift Away” and “Who’s For Lunch?”, Pat Palmer recalled her “Highlights Of Madeira” (the highlight for me being the dancing girls! 😉 ) while Bob Wyeth took us on ” A Sail On Lake Como”. Elsewhere Barbara “Cakes” Darby fed us a delicious “Taste Of China” and the Eptons had lunch on the Regent’s Canal during their “Day Trip” to Camden.

    Around the world in 80 days? Pfft. We can do it two hours here at OVFM! 🙂
