4. SOME YOU WIN
Teign Cine and Video Group (Devon)
At noon, an old tramp (Ken Baylis) is pushing his belongings in his old pram when he picks up a coin, reading WIN on one side and LOSE on the other. He then experiences a series of unexpected incidents ... This is an interesting, surreal movie which creates its own atmosphere very economically without dialogue, but with effective use of sound. Written by Victor Vasey, directed by Kristian Digby and produced by Richard Wheeler.

5. BACK ROW JOE

6. ONE MORE SHOT
Seven Teign Movie Makers (Devon)
This Russian roulette 'duel' between two men is brilliantly lit, shot and edited, building to an extremely tense climax - to which is added a lovely 'sting in the tail'! Written and directed by Ken Baylis.

7. THE LESSON
St. Cuthbert Films (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
Harry Joicey (Adam Bell), younger brother of the gentle Richard (Peter Coyne), is having problems coping with both the death of his mother a year earlier and the absence of his colonel father, who is away fighting in World War I. This makes him behave badly to nearly everyone. He intercepts and reads a letter addressed to Richard from their father and this leads him to contact Mr Hedley (David Peffer), an ex-soldier from his father's regiment ... A good story (by David Peffer) is complemented by fine performances, camera-work and editing. This is one of St. Cuthbert's most accomplished works, with their usual care for period detail.
Guernsey Lily, Best Fiction 1996; IAC Gold Seal 1996

Donated by Kenneth Seeger.
