  BIAFF 2011 Youth       (Library ref no. 117)

BIAFF - BRITISH INTERNATIONAL AMATEUR FILM FESTIVAL (Harrogate 2011)
These were all screened at BIAFF 2011, in the Cairn Hotel, Harrogate. Click here for Festival Report. We held a special cinema session dedicated to the work of our younger members. This compilation concentrates on that age group. All the films should be projected in 4:3 format. They are all 3-4 Stars Awards and they will provide an interestingly mixed programme for a Club night. Articles by the makers of those films marked with an asterisk (*) can be found in the "Making Of" pages.
