Who are we?


Finchley Film Makers (FFM) is a thriving and well-established film-making club. We are dedicated to the appreciation and production of non-professional films and videos. We welcome all like-minded people.


Whatever your technical or artistic skills, or if you are just interested in film, you will be very welcome.

We use a range of equipment from smartphones and tablets up to professional broadcast quality cameras and associated lighting and sound recorders.


If you have skills or interests in related topics such as drama, script-writing, camera operation, sound, music or lighting you will be a welcome part of the team.


We offer :


  • The chance to talk to other film-makers about equipment and  film making techniques.

  • Film shoots for hands-on experience.

  • The opportunity to show your films on our big screen to other members for constructive feedback.

  • The chance to see other independent film productions.

  • The chance to enter film-competitions within the club and get information about external competitions.

  • A wide range of talks and demonstrations on all aspects of film making. 

  • Social events throughout the year.
