Welcome to our friendly Film Making ClubBourne End Film Makers (BEFM) is an amateur film makers club where members meet on a regular basis to discuss and make films. We are a friendly club, set up to share knowledge, experience and also to help each other improve our skills and techniques in film making. Meetings involve practical exercises, talks by outside speakers, competitions and production meetings. Several social events are also held during the year to which friends and family members are invited.
Members make a variety of films including storyline, documentary, general interest and personal films. Films may be made by individuals or collaboratively in groups and can be entered into internal competitions. They may also be considered for entry into external competitions. Major club films are also produced, involving as many members as possible, in order to spread knowledge and expertise.
