I did attend the April BFCC but unfortunately I could not make it to this latest one in October. I sincerely hope however, that
Another BFCC will happen next year.Best regards to everyone.

Great historic photos taken there Stuart by the sounds of things. Thanks for posting them Stuart.

Incidentally, I noticed earlier today much of what Phil is displaying there in the photo, finished up on his list today.
Seems strange these quality titles did not sell, given those are what collectors are repeatedly asking for more of at these events. Very strange [Confused]

I bought Phil's print of Pinocchio on Saturday and have to say it is absolutely great.
Incidentally, does anyone have s print of Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" they would like to sell?

Andrew, I don't know how many films CHC sold but I had the feeling that their sale was not bad.

You just missed one Stuart on ebay last week. It finished up selling for more than Lady & The Tramp, which surprised me no end!

It is a stunning print though once you find one Stuart.
Well worth the wait!

As for Pinocchio, I'm baffled.
Pinocchio and Bambi plus Star Wars digest, were new on Phil's list today????

Maybe he wrote the list in advance of the weekend's event perhaps?

But then why not simply delete the titles already sold before airing the new sales list? [Confused]

Quite a coincidence then Dominique given the timing. None for years then two in two working days.

If it's not a coincidence, then it is incomprehensible, except if the list has been updated but the previous version was sent by mistake...

No Dominique, the things that were on today's list superseded what had previously been listed.

And the fact that when he left Phil said to me, when I said I would see him at Blackpool, that he would have to get some new stock for there.

Phil's a dealer, I do know he had some films delivered yesterday as I bought one of them, who's to say he didn't have more than one copy of it.

Yes it's possible Del, except to say when he gets a new collection, he usually looks through them a little before placing them up for sale on any list.

Still [Confused]

Unfortunately I wasn't able to partecipate to this one due to overlapping with another big event in Italy (not film one), but I would have liked to be there.

Browsing youtube I found this video of the day: https://youtu.be/BTfcdlW281g

I hope that Keith will decide to have another one if not next year in the following one.

Sorry to have not posted sooner everyone but I had forgotten this forum still existed as I stopped posting on here years ago after some rather abusive comments suggesting I didn't know what I was talking about. Anyway, nobody has said this will definitely be the last BFCC but that will probably turn out to be the case. This one lost Keith a lot of money and that has been the problem for several years now.

Thank you to everyone who came to what proved to be a celebration of the history of the original film collecting convention. It's still under the same management as it was back in 1976 although Keith was only marginally involved then. Keeping it going for 40 years is an incredible achievement although Keith was at the end of his tether when I made the mistake of getting involved about 25 years ago. After that though we proved to be quite a good partnership and we took Super 8 to heights most can only dream of. Yes, we did do a 34ft 'Scope screen one time and we did have Dolby Digital THX sound synchronized to Super 8 feature extracts. Live music accompaniments to silent films and a full orchestra playing well known film scores live at lunchtime are just some of the stand out highlights. We tried to generate new interest in a hobby that by any sensible measure should have died in the 1990s. When Bill Parsons converted my ailing GS1200 300w Gemini machine into HTI not even I believed his claims over the telephone regarding the light output he was reading. We all believed it once that extract from Terminator 2 fired up on the 24ft Harkness Hall CinemaScope screen. It needs another new lamp now to restore full brightness but still out performs the standard Xenon version. I'm sure many of us have some great memories of the BFCC and not just myself. It's nice to be able to look back now and Keith and I did just this during one or two of the shows last week.

There is no intention to drop the web site despite what may happen with the BFCC. You will find two pages of pictures from last Saturday on the 'Past Events' page. home

Thanks for clearing that up John, I thought attendence was good but obviously not enough if Keith has lost money, a great achievement by all as you say for 40 years, Mark
