At the British Federation of Film Societies annual conference, Watford Film Society were presented with the ‘Best Website’ award by BBC Radio 4’s Francine Stock.
Watford Film Society Chairman, Dr Tim Swanwick, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for us. We started from nothing in January this year and now we’re in a position where we have a large and loyal membership, a fantastic season of films on offer and lots of exciting plans going forward. Our website has been at the centre of all of that”.
The Watford Film Society only began screening in January 2010, but has already attracted over 200 members. The society shows films that rarely or never get shown at cinema multiplexes.
The films are introduced by talks and showings include extras such as quirky shorts and home-made cakes. Films are shown at the Clarendon Muse once a month and screenings are open to all. The society offers entertaining and educational events to members and guests.
