Screening on Saturday 21st August 2021

Early Screening on the late afternoon and evening of August 21st 2021

This month we are experimenting with holding the JAFWA sessions an hour earlier, to counteract the cold Winter.

So remember to turn up for a 4:15 start! During the month of August only.

Once again we have the standard program this week, with one new regular show. A rather bizarre little show, set in an alternate reality where past mistakes might be redeemed, if you can pay the price, chosen from your survey results.

Wonder Egg Priority

Annual General Meeting resolutions

Resolutions that occurred during the AGM on July 17th include:

  1. Experiment with earlier hours during the coldest part of Winter. We are attempting to change the bookings for August for this trial.
  2. Have a celebratory Dinner for the JAFWA committee members and general members, to be held on the evening of Saturday December 18th 2021, in lieu of a screening.

We will be attempting to implement these as soon as practical.

Currently we are looking for suggestions for a location for the dinner, and we are taking expressions of interest for attendees.
We will need to make the booking by the end of October, so places and attendance by then.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
– Help is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
