Post Film Discussion

On Sunday (9th Nov) we're going to have our first post-film discussion, about Russian Ark. Chris Pilling has kindly volunteered to 'chair' it, and we envisage about 20 minutes of talk about the film in the cinema for those who want to stay on.

BFFS Awards

Sadly we didn't make the hatrick of Best Programme Award at the 2003 British Federation of Film Societies Awards. However KFC was 'Highly Commended' for Best Film Programming and 'Commended' for Best Website. If you have any ideas how to make this site better please email webmaster@keswickfilmclub.org and maybe we can win the award next year.

Check back soon for details of the new season of films.

End Of Season

Rabbit-Proof Fence brought this season of films to a close and our audience rated it the 2nd highest film of the season. You can see how the rest of the films ranked in the table on the right. It may be too late to influence these scores but you can still vote for your favourite film in the web poll, also to the right.

We hope you all enjoyed this season and look forward to seeing you again in the Autumn.

4th Annual General Meeting

The AGM took place before the screening of Late Marriage a digest of the minutes is now available on the site here.

More Film In Keswick

It might be a good idea to keep an eye on what the Alhambra is offering for their weekly fare these days. The Pianist, The Hours, Far from Heaven...all in the space of four weeks. Be warned: if you want to see them, it's unlikely that the film club would bring them back when they've already been screened in Keswick.

More Awards

Once again KFC was short-listed in both Film Society of the Year and Best Programme categories of the annual British Federation of Film Societies Awards. We were very pleased to win the Best Programme Award again! It's thought to be unprecedented to manage it two years running, and apparently the judges had us some way ahead ( together with an enterprising student society that programmes theme-linked double-headers).
