Cinema Club members rate Club films on comment cards by general approval, how much they would or would not recommend the film, through qualitative comments, and on a scale of 1-5 for each of these five technical categories: Acting, Writing/Story, Cinematography, Editing/Pacing and the Use of Sound and Musical Score – it's the data from this last section that we use as part of a contest after each season to see how well members can guess their Club city's consensus of the films.
Thank you to all those who submitted entries to our first three contests. Those 21 winners won excellent film analysis works by our moderators and one was chosen randomly to win the 2009-10 grand prize, the Essential Art House: 50 Years of Janus Films DVD and book collection. Congrats again to that winner, Ann Paietta, of our Greater New Haven chapter!
