Parish Film Groups Wanted

From Our Own Correspondent

Parish groups which could review and offer constructive criticism of films shown at their local cinemas were advocated by the Rev. J. Burke, of the Catholic Film Society, speaking to members of the Newman Association in Manchester on Sunday.

The views of the group would. in turn be passed on by the local cinema manager to the headquarters of the film companies who were always anxious to find out just what the public wanted their films to be.

Such action would tend to raise the standard of films because, at present, there was a tendency for companies to concentrate on the technical side rather than think of the philosophy of a film, or its psychological effects.
