    • Forum Raison d'etre

      The Britmovie site was created in 1998 as a diminutive reaction to the excess of film websites devoted to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters; with only a handful focusing on Britain's rich cinema heritage. Over the years the site has evolved, always attempting to be a platform for those across the globe seeking information, discussion and assistance on British film throughout its turbulent history. The most common question is why it's called Brimovie, isn't that an oxymoron? Yes it is, but at the point of inception there was no available film or cinematic domain and the moniker Britmovie came to exhibit an unexpected symmetry that was both fitting and memorable.
    • Forum Etiquette

      We aim to maintain a community that is both friendly and informative; and the forums may be moderated with this objective in mind. When contributing to the site please ensure your posts are cordial and free from racist, sexist and xenophobic comment. Do not harass fellow members or openly insult them - if you are angered by the contents of a post please report it to a moderator.

      Please show etiquette and respect to other members by avoiding ‘thread hijacking’ and help to keep threads on-topic. If an existing thread motivates you to take the discussion in a different direction, rather than disregarding the original poster’s theme respectfully start a new thread on the topic deviation you wish to discuss.
    • Off-Topic Discussion

      The Britmovie forum features an off-topic area for minimal broader general discussion. Please note, this site is not a chat board, nor is it meant to be one. This kind of chit-chat is generally destructive to good discussion and has little relevance to the subject of films and cinema; and will frequently annoy the general membership. Excessive creation of irrelevant, boring, childish or unintelligent threads may be deleted at the moderator's discretion and may result in possible feature limitations. Kindly use the visitor message/private message feature for private banter.
    • Images

      Nude or strong sexually suggestive images posted must be in good taste and relevant to the topic being discussed and not merely intended for display. Nudity and adult scenes are a vital aspect of artistic expression in some films, but any images posted must be appropriate and not intended to agitate other community members.
      Any images/links that contain suggestions of nudity and/or sexual imagery will be removed if, in the opinion of the site administrators, they are deemed to be gratuitous, inappropriate and/or mischievous.
    • Multiple Accounts

      Dual alias or sock puppet accounts are forbidden. This means, don't create an account just so you can anonymously misbehave or trade under a pseudonym identity. Those discovered running multiple accounts will have them all deactivated whilst the matter is investigated.
    • What is an Established Member? (aka "Why Can't I...")

      In an attempt to encourage new members to participate in the forum film discussion and to curb spamming we've set a 5 post minimum before you are allowed access to the 'Looking for a Video/DVD' forums and many of the users extra features. Rather than post 5 meaningless additions to meet the requirements, do please introduce yourself and try to engage in the lively debates with other users. Thank you. Consecutive irrelevant posts aimed at merely reaching the quota will likely result in your account being closed.
    • Trading
    • This is a British film community seeking to assist fellow aficionados NOT a trading forum. Those found to be using the forums for the purpose of trading may face having their membership terminated without warning.
    • Copyright
    • Duration of copyright.
    • The 1988 Copyright, Designs and Patents Act states the duration as;
    • Sound Recordings and broadcasts
    • 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was created, or, if the work is released within that time: 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was first released
    • Films
    • 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last principal director, author or composer dies. If the work is of unknown authorship: 70 years from end of the calendar year of creation, or if made available to the public in that time, 70 years from the end of the year the film was first made available.
    • Broadcasts and cable programmes
    • 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the broadcast was made.
    • Websites

      Website links which contain inappropriate material or are designed to solicit business will be instantly removed and the user permanently banned. If unsure please contact a moderator to discuss the suitability of the site you wish to promote. Login names that similarly promote a business name will be rejected.
