Midland Movie Makers League at Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers

Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers belongs to a group of clubs called Midland Movie Makers.  Each year MMM holds an inter-club league.  Each club hosts one leg.  Last night it was our turn.   We had five films to watch and we had to rank them in order of preference.  The results are combined with the results of all the other legs, and the winning club is awarded a trophy.
