Never say "never". We feel the 65th BFCC is a good way to bow out but Keith Wilton, the organizer of the BFCC, is aware of the calls from collectors around the world for this event to survive and he is listening.

December 2016 Update - Is there a future for the British Film Collectors Convention? Whilst Mr. Wilton is standing aside from ever putting on the massive events we have had the enjoyment of over the past 40 years the possibility of a scaled down event sometime in the future has been proposed. The past two events both ran at substantial loss so if anyone would like to show their support for scaled down versions of the BFCC in the future I would urge you to support Keith's latest DVD/Blu-Ray release "THE LAST PICTURE SHOW" which highlights the unique nature of the conventions in more recent times with HD transfers of several of the shows from the 65th and last BFCC plus the fabulous show put on for the 50th event back in October 2005. Take a look at the FILMTEK page and if you can put an order through for this or any other Filmtek DVD release it could make all the difference to the survival of the original film collecting convention. 15 for the double DVD and 17.50 for the BD. A good response to this latest release really could make a difference.

For those of us seriously interested in the film collecting hobby I strongly recommend Keith's "THE MEN BEHIND THE MOVIES" which is all about the history of the package movie and the men who edited them, plus the history of the BFCC with much of the Super 8 footage we screened at the 65th event on Part 1. Visit the FILMTEK page and to order this title or any other please go to the FILMTEK ORDER PAGE and scroll to the bottom of that screen for the Men Behind The Movies series. I guarantee that once you've seen part 1, you'll want to see them all.
