Val Ellis, a long time member of Cheadle and Gatley Film Makers, passed away on 3rd January 2018.
Val was a tremendous asset to the club, and her huge knowledge of the amateur film-making world was invaluable in her recent role as Programme Secretary.
Val was a leading light in the IAC, and had held the position of President, Chairman, Council Member and Librarian at various times in the past. She was also deeply involved in BIAFF, both as an organiser and a judge.
The club is planning a tribute evening featuring some of Val's most memorable films on 10th January 2019, to mark the first anniversary of her passing.
Ken and Carol Wilson
Ken and Carol from Wakefield, are regular visitors to Cheadle and Gatley, and are prolific and award winning film makers under their Phase 4 banner. Ken is also a regular contributor to the IAC magazine.
This week they showcased a selection of their latest productions, along with a few of their earlier works.
As always, the standard was extremely high and made for a hugely entertaining evening.
