© 2019 Finchley Film Makers,

What do we do?


Our program of club nights contains a lively mix of presentations and workshops on filmmaking, where you can learn tips and techniques, as well as screenings and social events. In addition to club nights, we meet to make films and for other occasions by arrangement. All this represents incredible value for money on our Full Membership, which costs just £65 for the entire year (through to July 2020).

When do we meet?


We hold ‘club nights’ on alternate Friday evenings, from 7:30 pm until 10:00 pm.


Where do we meet?

We're easy to find at:


Quaker Meeting House, 58 Alexandra Grove, North Finchley, London N12 8QH.


West Finchley tube station on the Northern Line. Turn right on exiting the station and walk 8-10 minutes along Nether Street to Alexandra Grove, then turn right and look for the hall and small car park almost immediately on your left.


No. 221, alight at the Nether Street stop.
