The SPF AV Day was run annually by the SPF in various forms until a couple of years ago, when due to dwindling numbers attending, it was felt it was not economical in its current format. We hope to resurrect this event in a slightly different format, to encompass more of our Clubs and members who are doing Audio Visuals within our clubs today.

Historically it has been an audience event for audio visual enthusists. With a variety of visiting speakers and member's sequences to be seen, the event has varied to take account of the transition period between traditional production and digital. The occasional workshop has also been held over the years

Please feel free to let us know of other Audio Visual Events that are being run.

Any sequences arriving after this date cannot be reviewed and therefore won't be screened on the day. Sequences will be accepted in the order in which they are received.
