We were delighted to welcome Jacqueline Chell of the British Federation of Film Societies to our screening on Wednesday. We were screening The End of the Line, the recent film about overfishing and the state of the world’s fisheries, as one of our documentary events programmed by Transition Forest Row. The film was booked via the BFFS block booking scheme, so it was great to have Jaq there for one of the films BFFS distributes. She outlined the wide range of activities that the BFFS undertakes, and reminded us of the incredible size of the community cinema network, with maybe 500 organisations like us around the country.
The BFFS also organise the annual Film Society of the Year awards, so we took the opportunity of a photo of Brad receiving the award, for the benefit of everyone who wasn’t at the awards ceremony back in September. Our award submission is available on the BFFS site when we were the Featured Exhibitor, if you want to read a bit more about the range of things we have been doing in the last few years.
