Dear members, please note that the Croydon Film Society’s AGM is being held on Monday March 15 in Cinema 1 beginning at 6.45 pm. Please click here for the link to the AGM papers. We will be tabling the documents at the meeting, as read by the membership. Once the AGM has concluded, those members wishing to move to Cinema 2, may do so. The film being screened, Les Miserable, will begin screening at 7.15 in both Cinemas.
WE NEED YOU
“Three positions are shaping up in this in warm-hearted, active committee, and we hope that you will consider nominating for one that you feel you can happily fill.
The first is probably the most important role of all - the selector of films for the year-to-be, who makes the long list from which members cast their votes, and from which twenty-one films will become the next program. If you love films, follow a broad range of previews and reviews, take in festivals including at least some of MIFF and love sharing your favourites with fellow members, then you are invited to apply for the equivalent of an internship, working closely with the remarkable John Turner, who has been the master of this role for many years.
Eventually even superstars start thinking of retirement. Another long-standing, hard-working committee member is Howard Tankey, whose job it has been to chase up the distributors, and ensure that the films arrive in the right format on the right night. Howard too is beginning to think of putting his feet up, but needs to know that his role will be in good hands.
The third is a new position which we thought had had been filled but, sadly, the techno-digital expert who was helping us solve this sort of problem wasn’t able to continue on the committee. If you know your way around various platforms and programs and are inclined to be a digital problem-solver then please put your hand up. In all three cases the committee member will also be rostered at regular intervals through the year to scan tickets or hand out newsletters, and join in the committee meetings during the year.
We hope you will consider joining us on The Croydon Film Society’s Committee of Management.
Ways to contact the committee regarding your interest in joining the committee:
In the AGM 2020 document package there is a nomination form, which can be completed and returned to the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org and received before 5pm Friday 12 March 2021;
Contact the President, Jean Middleton, on Mob 0431 068 570 as soon as possible.
Speak to a Committee Member (look for their CFS lanyards) at the next screening.”
