Potters Bar Cine and Video Society celebrates 60 years

A PRODUCTION looking at 60 years of film making in Potters Bar was created to mark a society’s anniversary.

Potters Bar Cine and Video Society, which was formed in 1950, celebrated its diamond anniversary with a meeting at Northaw Village Hall where the collaboration was shown alongside a black and white comedy film, shot in and around Potters Bar, more than 50 years ago.

Penny Love, secretary of the group, said: “The whole event went down excellently well.

“The collaboration film proved very successful as well, as a lot of people don’t realise how good the films are and were.

“This year we did a matinee during the day as well, because last year’s main event proved so successful.”
