Surrey Alumni Day

This post is obsolete. The University of Surrey is holding their inaugural Alumni Day on Saturday 14th July 2012. Former OFU-er Jayne suggests an informal film society delegation to this event, presumably retiring for a £3.55 “crazy steak” afterwards. (Steak meals with all the trimmings are still £3.55, right?) Update:  Apparently I wasn’t even close […]

You wait years for a filmsoc, and then two come along at once

This post is obsolete. Despite The Shadowrooms apparently having state-of-the-art digital projection, 3D films and a nice comfortable theatre (these kids today, they don’t know they’re born) – USSU is apparently running a second film society called Front Row. As is now de rigueur, there’s next to no information on USSU’s website but it’s all […]

University of Surrey has new film society

This post is obsolete. The University and Students’ Union have collaborated to do something truly unexpected: after a gap of seven years, they’ve started showing films in a theatre environment once more. It’s not called OFU, and it’s not called Surrey Student Cinema either (don’t blame them, really): it’s The Shadowrooms. There’s not a huge […]

Oscar Film Unit Christmas 2007 get-together?

This post is obsolete. It’s been two years since the last OFU Christmas get-together, which was very enjoyable and rather successful (though I do say so myself). Is anybody interested in a follow-up this year? I’m proposing 8th December, probably in London. As before, because people may be travelling from far and wide, I suggest […]

OFU films available for streaming

This post is obsolete. Have you been wondering exactly why it is that we’re issuing OFU DVDs, but haven’t got around to putting any films on the Interweb yet? So have we. In fact, we’ve become so attached to the idea that we’ve launched a new Web Cinema – the WebPlex – for that very […]

50th Anniversary DVD – website launched

This post is obsolete. We’ve put together a brief website about the Gold Anthology collection [link removed], which lists all the films on the disc and offers some helpful hints [link removed] if you’re having difficulties with the DVD.

Xmas shindig & updated FAQ

This post is obsolete. Well, we were thinking that it was about time to have a bit of a get together, so we are planning a Christmas pub lunch for ex-OFUers and associates. Probably in London on 3rd December. It would be nice, don’t you think, to get together over a roast dinner and reminisce […]

For old times’ sake

This post is obsolete. LINKS REMOVED. There is still plenty of Oscar Film Unit documentation and information on the Web. Here are a few places you might like to look, for old times’ sake: The entire original OFU website – now 95% broken-link free! USSU’s Surrey Student Cinema document [PDF] (warning: strong stomach required, provokes […]

Some photos

This post is obsolete. I’ve scanned in a few photos [link removed] of Christmas meals and a summer picnic. (Warning to those on dial-up: images are rather large).
