66th BFCC - 29th April 2023

The new venue is to be the Chorleywood War Memorial Hall which is both on the Western edge of London and within the London Underground network but outside of the Congestion Tax zone which means it is as accessible as it can possibly be for an event to be held in the London area. There is a large car park at the hall (directly opposite) which is free. The address of the new venue is Common Road, Chorleywood, Herts, WD3 5LN.

Doors will open at 10am. Admission just 5.

As more news becomes known we will post it here but at the time of writing the hope is that Keith Wilton will be back as the master of ceremonies as usual. Also, the intention is that the 24 feet wide CinemaScope screen will be in use but the hall does have a drop down screen that is approximately 17 feet wide if we do have a problem. We expect to be showing Super 8, 35mm and 4K video projection for a possible direct comparison between 4K and 35mm. A good supply of dealers is planned including:
Classic Home Cinema
David James Manning
Joe McAlister
Renown Films
Rake Movies
Glyn Jones
Nigel Higgins
Rob Koeling
Amanda Huntley
Murray Paterson
Roger Godden

Doors will open at 10am. Admission just 5.

Organizers and dealers entry from 8am. A 6ft x 2.5ft dealer table charge is 25. Please email me via john.clancy@bfcc.biz if you are interested in having a table as we would like to fill both of the available side rooms with films, videos and memorabilia for sale.

More news will be uploaded as it comes in.
