Can you remember the first 16mm film you saw ?
What was it and where did you see it and when ?

It would be in junior school David, it was a documentary on Tea Picking in Ceylon, such a nicer sounding name than Sri Lanka, about 1961.

Junior school 1975. Some dreadful French animated feature that was entirely spoken in French so may as well have been a silent film for all we could understand from the dialogue.

I remember it being a very well worn print. It'd certainly done the rounds at the schools that's for sure!

Anyhow the whole thing was so memorable I can't even tell you the name of it now but the Bell & Howell projector used I distinctively remember and I was more encapsulated by the machine than I ever could possibly have been by what was being screened!

I think the first 16mm print I saw was a Gene Autry Western at a Xmas party film show.
However I clearly remember seeing Abbott and Costello in the short " No Indians Please" and
Walt Disney cartoon in colour "Little Hiawatha" at Primary School.
I do remember being more interested in the Projectors though. I was hooked.

I suppose the first was Oh What A Lovely War over three days at lunch I think. We did have the usual educational films too. One I recall was about Australia outback I think.

I still love the smell of film in the morning

White Christmas in the village Hall in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, Oxfordshire, England.

All I can remember is that I was at junior school it was shown at the weekend and it was snowing outside. (Must have been late 50's)
