The Third Annual Madison/ Felix Awards (1998)

Synopsis: Felix was added back into the name because it was discovered that the other Felixes that was discovered last year was now defunct. This years Madison’s will once again be held at the Screening Room (located in the back of the Century Plaza) on Saturday, March 21st (1998 ) from 6pm to 10pm. Attendance did not grow much this year in actual attendees due to a sudden snow storm the night before, however it should be noted that approximately 50 tickets were sold to this year’s gala event. This year also marked the return of the door prizes, however not everyone got one this year, but still about 15 people went home with something extra. The complaints with last year’s event were corrected as this year’s event was on a Sunday, and all but two clips appear correctly on the big screen. This year’s improvements were a screen opening and titles appearing on the clips. Also there was a camcorder for the event, unfortunately the battery died half way through the program.
