Film of the week
Ken Wilson's tribute to Laurel and Hardy
Things to do this week ...
There have been some technical problems with the CEMRIAC, website, that were only recently overcome. This may have left some of you uncertain about the CEMRIAC Seminar, originally planned for this weekend (14-15 May). Unfortunately, a combination of Covid concerns, and last-minute difficulties with speakers, meant that we have had to postpone this event. We now plan to combine it with the AGM, on 20th November. More details later.

Plenty of exciting things happening to wrap up the Coventry City of Culture Activities - plenty of local colour to record.
Imagineer is working with Artichoke and Coventry City of Culture 2021 to develop this biennial event. A celebration of installation work, sitting at the intersection of art, engineering, architecture and social change. Artwork honouring those lost to Covid to be built by local community in ‘the town that never forgets’ 21 – 28 May 2022
In May 2022, a unique public memorial will be built in Nuneaton & Bedworth, birthplace of George Eliot and home to the country’s largest Armistice Day Parade. Sanctuary will stand as an unforgettable temporary structure and space of healing, built by the local community to commemorate the nation’s loss during Covid. Sanctuary is produced by Artichoke in association with Imagineer, supported by Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council, and the DCMS Culture Recovery Fund.

Nuneaton Moviemakers Guest speakers ...
8th April 2021, 7.30pm - 9.00pm
Jayne Slater, professional film maker in the East Midlands, joined us for an interesting and engaging talk recently. Jane was one of a series of guest speakers who have been kind enough to give up their time for us.
Don't worry if you missed it, you can see a recording of the event here ...
Nuneaton Annual Competition
Nuneaton Moviemakers annual competition still went ahead this year, albeit it in a different way to previous years. Geof Caudwell kindly agreed to be our guest judge and despite the lockdown we had eleven films entered. Geof will be provided his critique over live link.
As for the script competition, well we'll have to wait and see as as usual Geof will have the Christmas break to make the decision. No annual dinner though in January for obvious reasons, so watch this space.
Best Movie - 'Set Fair' - Alan Atkinson
Best Sound - 'Watch the Birdie' - Gerry Bishop
Highly Commended - 'Birmingham 2020' - Patrick Woodcock
We are recruiting ...
