2017 in Review

And just like that, 2017 was preparing to roll its credits.

This year has been an exciting one for A Film Club. Countless hours were spent watching movies, creating questions, and hosting 50+ chats on Twitter. The club is now over 100 members strong, and includes an incredibly talented bunch of people; from fantastic filmmakers to talented writers, passionate podcasters to film fanatics, and exciting YouTubers too... And on top of that, we have also surpassed 1,000 followers on Twitter! I never anticipated any of these things when I first considered starting an online film club, and this is all so much more than I could have ever wished for.

The club launched this website, ran its first ever giveaway, created and sold merchandise (on sale here!) and, on behalf of A Film Club, I was invited to some fantastic events too. Including a premiere at the Prince Charles cinema in London, and talks from influencers and industry professionalshosted by Launching Film. All were absolutely mind-boggling experiences that I will never forget.

2017 in Review

A Film Club is intended to be a place to share your film-related creations, and connect with other film lovers. Without you there would be no... Well... This. I am so grateful to every single person who has joined in with a chat, signed up to be a member, followed us on Twitter, tagged us in a tweet, used the #afilmclub hashtag, shared our content, liked and retweeted us, or has supported us through spending their hard-earned cash on our merchandise.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It means the world, space, infinity and beyond. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I want to continue to make A Film Club a fun and supportive space in the new year, but we'll talk more about that in the 2018! I hope you have had an amazing year - and here's to an even better one... And on that note, I guess there's not much left to say now apart from; I'll be back.
