FILMS THIS YEAR

It is remarkable that 33 club members were in some way involved in at least one of the films shown at the AGM.

This year we have screened over 80 new SCMM films at the club.  Some of these are big productions with many participants.  Some are fun films made on the spur of the moment.  Others are serious films made by individuals.  Some are the first film that that member has ever made.  They range in subject matter and genre from music videos to dramas to comedies and documentaries. They range in length from less than a minute to nearly 20 minutes.

As a club we can be proud of our achievements!
