Entries are very welcome at all levels There is a comprehensive programme of competitions each year and these are always popular, well attended evenings. There is a wide range of subjects chosen in advance to give plenty of notice. See below.

Why Competitions?
We hold our regular video film competions to add some spice and excitement to the club year and to encourage members to build on their video and editing skills, year by year. You do not need expensive equipment to make films - we can show you how.

Our Summer Club
When the more formal meetings come to an end in April of each year, our summer club then meets every Friday evening thoughout the summer months. This is an opportunity for old and new members alike to socialise and to help each other with any film-making or editing problems that they may have. Please come along if you can.

Existing Members
