A Record Number For MFAA Event

Midland Film and Art were asked to showcase a variety of local history films to educate and entertain the members of the Darby & Joan Club that meet regularly at Overend Methodist Mission, Banners Lane, Cradley on the 4th of June last month. MFAA presented four short films that day which went down very well with the club members, so much so that we were asked to screen again.


Nearly 100 people turned up to see the folowing short films based around the First World War: The Story of Joseph Tranter

Avenue of Remembrance Funeral of Sgt Joe Tyler We Will Remember Them

Midland Film And Art volunteers had a wonderful evening screening and presenting the films to so many people, it is encouraging to know that people have not forgotten the fallen from WW1 and they too express such an amazing enthusiasm for local history and filmmaking.

Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
