Club Competitions

SBMM bafta’s 2nd June 17

2017 A reminder: Our very own version of the BAFTAs will take place on 2nd June 2017.

To be considered for an OSCAR your film needs to have been shown at the club.

This gives you the chance to show your longer films (than 6 minutes).

If it has already been shown at the club, then it will be considered, as long as Gillian has a copy, if you have one you want to show you need to let Rita know before this Friday and depending on length, it can be shown at the November club night or in January.
