We support people at risk of homelessness to make sure there's a home for everyone


Starting as a simple way to expand my film knowledge, the 250 film challenge is simply a challenge to watch 250 films in 2016. That is an average of 21 films a month, or 5 films a week or a film every 1.48 days. As the challenge is taking some considerable time commitment on my part (around 500 hours which is over 20 days!) I thought I would ask you kind folk to join in by throwing a few quid the way of my chosen charity, Shelter.

If only half of the people I know on Facebook sponsored me for £2.50 (just 1p per film), I would easily smash my target, but please be as generous as you can.

As an added incentive, if you donate £5 or more you can name a film for me to watch. If you want to torture me with a weepy or a rom com, treat me with a Stallone action-fest or simply have me watch your favourite film then just add the film to the commentary on your donation and I will make sure I include it.

Here are the rules that I will be sticking to for the challenge:

> The films must be watched in full, part watched films do not count

The films can be new or old and from any genre (including documentary and non-fiction), but feature length TV episodes do not count.

Watching films that have been seen before is fine, but repeat watches of the same film do not count (this is 250 films, not 250 watches)

More info on the challenge and my progress can be found on my website www.moviemuse.net
