This is the second selection of entries from the BIAFF 2011 Competition. The Awards range from 3-5 stars. If used to present a Club evening the timing of the programme will have to revolve around the 58 minute length of Montague Jack. It is surrounded by an entertaining mix from documentaries to light comedies. Compilation by Val Ellis (Video Selector) Reviews by Michael Gough. The "making of" articles may provide points for discussion.
