And here we go again!!

The annual OVFM Top 10 Competition for 2013 is due to start soon and once again it will be contested over five rounds across the year. Last year 26 entries which was two up on 2011, while we also set a precedent by adding an extra date due to low turnout early – but don”t mistake kindness for weakness – the Legion of Doom may not be so forgiving this year!

It would be hugely appreciated by Brenda if you could all strive to get your films in on the dates you are listed on, but if for some reason you don’t have your film ready by the given date, please let her know via e-mail so that she can try to find someone else to fill the gap in the evening. If your film is ready early please bring it along on a top ten night and if there is time we will show it.

If you miss your given round you can bring your film along to a later one, but it will only be shown after those drawn for that round, if there is time.

Be sure to check the results page (once it is up) as the competition progresses.

Happy filming people! 🙂
