Tuesday, 5 February - 7.30pm
WELCOME to Bristol Film and Video Society.
All aspects of film making are covered at our twice monthly meetings which run throughout the year.
You can find us at 7.30pm every first and third Tuesday of the month at the Filton Town Council Pavilion, Elm Park, Filton, Bristol, BS34 7PS.
Why not come to a couple of meetings and see how you get on. One of our clubs main aims is to help beginners and if you decide to join membership is only £45 for a whole year. For this you get guest speakers, 'how to' sessions, practical events and, if you choose, involvement in our ongoing projects and productions.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Documentary filmmaker Frank Bond will show his film, “Strong to Save”.
Frank will talk us through the production process:
“This is the story of the greatest of lifeboat in the history of the RNLI.
Henry Blogg served as coxswain at the Cromer station for over 40 years, through two world wars. He is credited with saving nearly 900 lives.
As a young man the crew rowed out into the treacherous North Sea in an open boat. They could be out in all seasons for two days. He finally retired aged over 70, some years after the second word war ended. He was awarded the George Cross, three RNLI gold medals (the lifeboat VC) and throughout remained a reserved humble unknown hero.”
It is with the greatest regret that we announce the death of a great friend of the club - Andy Rusbridge.
An affectionate paragraph or two is being prepared.
