Tonight on behalf of Maroondah City Council I had the honour and privilege of attending the Ringwood Film and Video Makers 50th anniversary.
It is remarkable to see a non-profit organisation continue so strongly after 50 years and it is a testament to the dedication provided by the many members within the club. The Ringwood Film and Video Makers was formed in 1956 so that can members can make and showcase their movies and the organisation has prospered throughout this time readily adapting to new technology including the latest in video editing and DVD recording.
The evening showcased footage created by the Ringwood Film and Video Makers from the past 50 years and it was remarkable to see such high quality content and the usage of creative special effects.
I wish the Ringwood Film and Video Makers all the very best and no doubt they will continue to prosper as they approach their 75th and 100th anniversaries.
Congratulations to all past and current members of the Ringwood Film and Video Makers it is an incredible achievement to be a part of a non-profit organisation that is still thriving after 50 years.
