What do we do?
Our programme 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 8HG.
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.

Deadline for submissions to the FFM annual competition of 2020. Submit your film on this website at FILM COMPETITION, and in two weeks time, attend online to hear the judges comments and results.
Covid-19 is no excuse for not making and submitting your film to the FFM annual competition of 2020! And the current restrictions should create lots of spare time for you to work on it. This is nothing new; for example, the webmaster received Best Animation in 2018 for his film "Carb Heat" filmed entirely by himself within his own property.
So get to work and submit your film on this website at: FILM COMPETITION.
May 29 - Annual Competition - Simon Woolf
We will hold a Zoom meeting which all club members can join online. We will distribute links to each of the films submitted to the competition by the deadline two weeks ago - see above. So you can watch the films and then hear the judges comments, and we will announce the results. Certificates will be distributed by e-mail for you to print out.
