Minutes of meeting
Present: Duncan, Nick, Magda, Swithun
We came up with a list of films to show, including all the ones that didn't get shown for various reasons:
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Blue (Derek Jarman)
Fear Eats the Soul
Enfants du Paradis
House of Yes
Gospel according to St Matthew
/ Dr Strangelove
Of the Kubricks, I would choose Lolita. What does anyone else think?
If anyone has anything to say about these films and dates, speak now or forever hold your codpiece. They will go to Events in a few days.
On the good side, we have a better class of customer now. People know that Monday is Film Night (most people most of the time anyway), and we have less disruption. Putting the kitchen into hibernation/slow motion during the film helps, as does starting at 9pm (unless there is a long film/double bill), as we don't overlap with people wanting dinner.
On the bad side, we have been a bit crap at writing the films into the Events book. This has led to mix ups and people even writing their own film suggestions in the book.
We need to come up with a sentence or two which will go on a leaflet which is to be left on tables to inform customers about what goes on at the Forest. This could be our mission statement, or something more fun. I will start a thread on this.
We will also provide an update on what we are doing which can go on the back of the events poster. I'm not sure what this could be really, as all we do are the events which go on the front of the events poster.
Upcoming film makers
We need to let up and coming film makers know that we would like to screen their films (if they are good). Magda will make a poster at some point.
We will meet the last Monday of every month at 8pm.
