The fun has begun!
I had wanted to bring Fortnight Film back for a long time but it needed to be the right time and the right place with the right people.
Previously we had run it very badly. We’d had a few people playing, a few suggestions thrown around and a film picked from that small number of films…but this time…we’ve gone big!
I went a little dirtbag to start with and invited every single one of my Facebook friends to the group. Now some couldn’t be added as it was the same group as previous and therefore some people had left and blocked themselves from being re-added but that’s fine.
So this past week we’d been asking people to submit films that they love that they think the world should see. Little gems of films that might not be big budget (or they may be) which you love to tell your close friends about.
We had 32 films submitted and they all got put into a list and into a poll. The poll can be voted on by anyone (we ask that you put your actual name down so we can see there’s no cheating going on), and whichever film tops the poll next Sunday will be our Fortnight Film. Members will then have two weeks in which to source and watch the film before posting their review of the film for all to read.
The poll can be found by Clicking Here
During the two weeks that one film is being watched, another one will be selected ready to take over from the first one two weeks down the line and so on and so forth.
It’s a bit of fun to get people recommending and watching films they wouldn’t necessarily get to watch normally. It’s all about broadening horizons of film.
