    I'm hoping that someone would start a convention over here on this side of the U.S., but I wish you guys the best of luck.

    EARLY ARRIVALS

    As previously mentioned in this thread, I would like to host a movie night in my home a few days before our event begins. Those who are arriving early are welcome to attend. This will appeal to those who wish to see my home cinema, and learn about how I do things. My procedures are that of a 35mm analog booth, but scaled down to accommodate the smaller gauges of film. You could learn how to easily improve your screenings should you like one of my ideas. Or come and relax and enjoy a movie.

    I will offer a showing from my collection. Similar to the Friday night feature in Wildwood. Here is an opportunity to vote for the title that will be shown.

    To vote for your choice, do not post in this thread. Instead, please email me privately and the address will be shown below. I will keep score and announce the winner.

    Please note the titles selected represent time frame of production. From the very early days to rather recent. A chance to review technical advances in film making and how it reflects on super 8 copies.

    The choices are:

    SVENGALI. Super 8 mono black and white. John Barrymore.

    THE LITTLE MERMAID. Super 8 Dolby Surround. One of Derann’s best masterings.

    TITANIC. James Cameron’s masterpiece. Super 8 cinemascope & Dolby Surround.

    SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. Anthony Hopkins. Super 8 Dolby Surround.

    You may vote for two titles. If time permits a double feature will be arranged.

    Seating is limited to 5 people per show. Considering restrictions that we have to follow, if more people are interested than can be seated, I will schedule two screenings and you will just have to wait for a turn.

    I trust that I will get plenty of replies. Popcorn, soda, cartoons & trailers are also included! Please vote today!

    Subject line please: Super 8 Screening FFCC 2021

    THE WEATHER REPORT

    In the event of bad storms, such as Tropical or Hurricane, our event will be proceeding as scheduled.

    The only reason why we should ever think about canceling will be either the Governor ordering evacuation – or the hotel company deciding to close. All of which is based on public safety.

    We hope it doesn’t happen. But hey it is Florida, and yes it’s scheduled right smack in the middle of storm season. Due to these extreme situations, we expect that refunds will be available.

    Please come and enjoy this event. Just don’t forget an umbrella!

    Sincerely,

    Chip Gelmini
