The world of non-commercial film and A-V

 

It is with great regret and sadness that we report the death of Valrie Bristow Ellis FACI on January 3rd. She will be mourned by many friends in the IAC and in the wider world of UNICA. As well as being a talented and passionate film maker, Val supported the IAC in many ways - as President, Chairman, Council member, Librarian, helping to run BIAFF and as a BIAFF judge. Your webmaster's most recent memory of her is at BIAFF last year when she agreed to interview the Best British Young Film Maker, combining her love of animation with her passion for encouraging young film makers.
Val's funeral will be at Altrincham Crematorium at 12.30pm on Wednesday February 7th.

Would your club like to watch the NTRIAC FF entries?
If you have a spare club evening or two, North Thames would be pleased if you would look at the videos entered in their 2017 Film Festival. They are on Vimeo, so you can either download your selection of films or just stream what you want – that’s of course if you have a decent Internet connection. NTRIAC and the film makers would welcome comments on the films. Please enter them in the Vimeo comments section. The Vimeo site is vimeo.com/user56839430.
