I just got back from another enjoyable day at Keith Wilton's BFCC at Ealing. I got to see all the shows, and as usual the content was brilliant, but I'll do my usual review for my booklets (and it usually ends up in Film Collector too!). I saw many old friends, and had a great day chatting away (as you do at these events), and yes it could be the last ever BFCC, but no confirmation for certain (I'm crossing my fingers Keith will have another one, but I can understand if he calls it a day). I picked up some new stock, so I was pleased, but 8mm was a bit thin on the ground again, hardly anything on the Bring & Buy stall, but I guess there were one or two bargains had, that I must have missed.
If I missed talking to anyone, I'm sorry, but when I make a promise (to myself, at least!) to see all the film programs, I only get so long in between shows to talk to people, but I managed quite a few as usual, and it was most pleasing to see the efforts of some of the long distance collectors to attend, I even talked to Massimo Dalla Pria who flew in from lovely Venice for the day, now that's a real effort, well done.
Overall another very enjoyable day for all who attended.
