About the Albany Competition

The Albany Competition began in 1966 after a suggestion by film making enthusiast and Albany Cine Club Chairman, Syd Mitchell . He suggested a competition to find the best film between Sussex clubs. This film had to be set to a theme, chosen by a representative of the clubs involved. After he died, the Albany Cine Club unfortunately folded but, thanks to the enthusiasm of the other Sussex clubs, the competition was revitalised and continues today as a tribute to Syd.

Initially open to all Sussex clubs, the competition has now been extended to closer clubs in East Hampshire, Surrey and Kent with a maximum number of fourteen club entrants. If there are insufficient entries, participating clubs can submit a second movie.
