113 delegates from 24 Societies enjoyed Batcombe’s legendary hospitality with great food and films. The highest-scoring films were the feel-good The Peanut Butter Falcon and the outstanding documentary Honeyland both achieving scores of over 90% accompanied by some great shorts sourced by Chris Baker. We’ve already heard that some groups have shortlisted both The Peanut Butter Falcon and Bait for their forthcoming seasons, while Transit and Aniara were the most divisive titles of the day, one delegate describing the latter as “absolutely brilliant” while others were less convinced!
We will continue to monitor the take-up of the featured titles by South West-based member groups – please let us know if you will be programming any of them (including the shorts). Full details of the audience reaction scores are shown below.

A massive thank you goes to Virginia Membrey and her fantastic team for making it such a memorable day. Thanks too to Helen Ostle for her wonderful work on the Viewing Day brochure and to the Cinema for All SW Executive for their additional support.
We are thrilled that Lost in Film in Lostwithiel have agreed to host the Cornwall leg of the Spring Viewing on 29th March 2020 but we are in need of a host for the eastern leg, hopefully on the 22nd March. If you feel you can help please contact Jane Sanders on 01934 842940 – all you need is a team of helpers, a venue with two suitable viewing rooms, somewhere to eat and meet and we will help with advice, expertise and anything else that’s needed!
