-SPRING SEASON - WEEK 3 - TONIGHT - ROOM OPEN - JOIN US
-Spring is here and we return to our tried and tested method of weekly themes categorised by genre!
The voting method is similar to last Season.
1) Nominate your films based on the Genre of the week.
2) Nominated films will then be chosen for screening by those who attend FML Film Night!
As always, there is some Genre crossover, but here are some good lists to take your picks from!
THIS WEEK - CULT FILMS / B-MOVIES!
What is a cult film?
"Cult films trace their origin back to controversial and suppressed films kept alive by dedicated fans. In some cases, reclaimed or rediscovered films have acquired cult followings decades after their original release, occasionally for their camp value. "
But that definition has broadened out to cover more mainstream films that had a major release, bombed, only gain popularity in subsequent years on VHS/DVD.
What is a B-Movie.
The definition of this has morphed over time too.
"A B movie or B film is a low-budget commercial movie, but not an arthouse film. In its original usage, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the term more precisely identified films intended for distribution as the less-publicized bottom half of a double feature (akin to B-sides for recorded music)"
These days that definition has often morphed into meaning a film made on a budget but with ingenuity and craft. These are often cheap horror/sci-fi films that gained traction in the 70s/80s, especially when VHS became common place.
Film Night takes place each SATURDAY with the room opening at 6:00pm est with the film starting around 6:30pm.
Rabb.it is the streaming site we use. It allows a simultaneous stream and chat.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME at any point during the night. We normally try to watch two films each evening depending on length.
If you have not already, sign-up to rabbit and join us when the link is posted!
Feel free to attend, even if you are late or can only make the second film.
Film Night will be at 6:00pm EST on SATURDAY each week!
