V.U.C. Film Society

V.U.C. Film Society

The film is the most vigorous art form today."

—Contrant Lambert (a musician)

Films are becoming a grester part of the artistic creations of the present day. Most students are filmgoers, and like to practice their critical ability on the film they see. At VUC there are many clubs which cater for the interests and tastes of the student but there is no society or club which caters for those who appreciate good film art. It is proposed to start such a society. This society will endeavour to instruct its members in film art. The programme would Include lectures from prominent people in the film world of the capital (such as Gordon Miramsi from whom we would learn something of the rudiments of film art. For the critical benefit of the societies members a programme of films hired from Ihc National Film Library and other organisations would be shown.

The ultimate aim of the society is to purchase a camera and produce its own films applying the technique and knowledge we will have learnt.

The Oxford University students have won world recognition because of their experimental films and surely in our small way we can follow them.

A notice will appear on the notice board on Friday. May 2, for those who are interested to add their names and telephone number and address.
