Well done David and crew!

My wife Diane and I have just returned from a most thoroughly enjoyable weekend in Blackpool. A very BIG THANK YOU must be extended to David and his team for a perfect event, held in the finest venue ever. It is always a pleasure to meet familiar faces from my Derann days and rest assured we will be attending again next year, subject to work commitments. Meanwhile, I will begin viewing the many bargains purchased!

Kindest Regards Always

Gary & Diane Brocklehurst

Well done indeed Mr. Guest! Sounds like a 'reely' first class convention. And nice that all the collectors film guages were fully represented.
Can't wait to see the pics! [Smile]

A very enjoyable day. This year there was definately more Super 8mm on offer this year than last year and the venue was very good indeed. Nice to meet up with old friends again, not having attended the last BFCC, due to ill health.
As others have said, the "atmosphere" was more "film related" than it has appeared to be over the past couple of years.

Blackpool was great 😊 probably the best one for years and the venue was excellent too.

Far more Super 8mm for sale than previous years and I came away with a full bags full of films as usual.

Hats off to David Guest for reviving the Blackpool convention as it was really on its last legs a few years ago.

The film shows were great too and Bob Nicholls projection was second to none,I thought thought he was projecting 16mm as the quality of the Super 8mm show in the morning was so good!!

Adrian Winchester provided a great evening on Saturday night with his dinner and film show with a lot of interesting short films shown and who can forget the singing postman 😄😄

A superb weekend all in all and the venue is now officially booked for 2014 too 😊😊

Yet again another superb event. Blackpool really has returned to the heyday of cine, even better than it was say twenty years ago. Dave had everything well organised and we must thank him for injecting new life into this well-loved event giving it a very secure future! The new hotel was easily the best I've ever stayed in; food, room and facilities were amazing. I will be booking next year for what has to be the best event of the year.

Adrian Winchester provided another classic evening on the Saturday. I have never laughed as much, nor won as many prizes! Again, this event cannot be improved upon. Thank you Adrian for all your efforts, which I know were appreciated by everyone. I was filming on Super 8 (200D film) which I hope to show next year at the dinner.

Looks spectacular! Congratulations to David Guest and all involved in putting on this terrific event.

Congratulations also to Adrian Winchester for his very well reviewed Saturday dinner/show. I would love to see some pictures from that evening.

Wasn't a certain sizable simian supposed to make an appearance at Blackpool? I believe Lee Mannering had predicted such an occurrence...

Hi Fabrizio,

I explained on another thread that the labs have been delayed again and the new releases would not be ready in time for Blackpool as originally hoped.

Excellent photos, wish I was there.

Any video?

Yes its got to the stage that whenever I see adverts for new releases coming in, nowadays I always add several months to that. Phil is always upbeat about the new releases on his website but Im not confident they will arrive anytime soon. But all you can do is wait. Im just glad that new prints are still being struck.

Doug. Unfortunately Konga was not included in the super 8 programme so he stomped off back to Blackpool zoo for a hot date but he will return rest assured.

People are still talking about this fabulous weekend and I would put it right up there with the Blackpool 80’s film conventions. It is a really unique one this more so as you have a resort outside the hotel door with the sea etc making for quite an amazing time. Really nice event and from a traders point of view sales were very high indeed with lots of interest in all the film gauges. As mentioned previously you will find film and equipment prices lower here than the south so it does make sense to make the journey if you can. Wonderful day which we will remember for many a year I am sure..

I went down on the Sunday, as I have been doing since the 80's and have to say this was the best convension I have been to since certainly the early 90's. A BIG BIG hats of to David, I cannot thank you enough for reviving this great event when all of us thought it was over with the demise of Derann. I have stayed at the Hilton many times so knew what to expect, GREAT choice David, well done. It was the largest haul of super 8 films I have ever purchased at a convention, it will take me weeks to get it all cleaned and viewed, also it was nice to meet up with Gary and Dianne again and also chat to fellow collectors, to all those who didn't go and wished they had, mark it on your calender for next year, UNMISSABLE, Del.
