Welcome to WFT
By Robert Holt
Hi everyone ,
Welcome to the Wanaka Film Trust blog .
In time , we hope to have a website up and running , but this will suffice for now .
I'd just like to thank everyone who came out to the first public WFT meeting at the Paradiso Cinema on Thursday .
It was great to see a good turnout .
I must apologise for not getting to speak to everyone , but would hope that we will get the opportunity to do so in the near future.
Thanks to Darren Simmonds for speaking on the night . He's a much better public speaker than I am and I think , given the time constraints we were under he did an excellent job of introducing and explaining WFT .
Also special thanks to Callum and all the lovely Paradiso crew , for , not just providing a good venue for our meeting , but for having an awesome cinema . I urge you to spend plenty time there , both for movies and good grub , but also as a place to hang out and meet up with friends .
But mostly thanks to you guys .
Y'all seem like a talented bunch and I look forward to seeing examples of your work , both past and future.
Topher - you sounded good on the radio on Friday!
Maria - I checked out your website - really cool pics!
Ian - Thanks again for those links - I'll add a links section to this blog (if I can work out how).
Katharine - I hope you found your Cinderella .
I will email a link to this blog to you all but if I have misread anyones email address and they fail to get this
and you know them , could you please ask them to email me at the address in the email you recieve .
Please everyone , leave comments regularly so I know I'm not alone! .
