Our Club started in the days of cine-film, 1958, but we have progressed a long way since then with members keeping up to date with the latest filming, editing and projection technologies. Now we have over 70 members, aged 16 to 86, and all are welcome either to learn or to pass on their knowledge to others, or most importantly to make and show us their films
Meetings are held from 8 – 10pm on alternate Tuesdays at the Barnard Room, St. Augustine’s Church, Southborough Lane, Petts Wood BR2 8AT
Social Events: As well as Club evenings, we also hold social events such as a BBQ, Ramble and Annual Dinner. All members can contribute to our Newsreel of interesting events in the Bromley Borough which is shown at our Spring Show in a larger venue to over 100 friends and family.
Club films are made by groups including experts and “novices”, we run in-house competitions but also encourage members to make Project films which are not competitive.
We are affiliated to the IAC, the film and video institute – www.theiac.org.uk, and enjoy meeting fellow enthusiasts at inter-club, regional and international film festivals.
OVFM often does well at the Kent Film Festival www.kentfilmfestival.com
We have Tutorial Evenings in the winter and have some Practical Evenings but more knowledge is probably passed around between members. So many different cameras and editing equipment are used that someone will have ideas about any problems that you need to be solved.
We always say, it’s the FILM MAKER and not the equipment that makes a good film!!
