Burnley Film Festival 19
This years Burnley Festival was held on 17th March, and we're delighted to announce that the Cheadle and Gatley entry, "Finding El Nino", by Richard Scarsbrook, came second in the competition.
Many congratulations to Richard on a well deserved award!
Quiz Night is fast becoming one of the most popular events in the club programme, and this years' evening was no exception!
The winners this year were "The Extras Team", with "The Producers" and "The Directors" coming a close second and third.
Many thanks to Phil Guy and Geoff Gilbert for all the hard work they put it in to make it such an enjoyable evening.
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.
International award winning Wildlife and Local History Filmmaker, Peter Durnall, made a return visit to the club on 14th March.
Peter showed us a number of his excellent films, and discussed the techniques and equipment he uses to film the most difficult of subjects.
Many thanks to Peter for making the trip up from Staffordshire, and giving us another entertaining evening.
