Chichester Film & Video Makers are a group of enthusiastic amateurs committed to the art of film making.
The aim of the club is to encourage an interest in film and video production as a medium of information, education and entertainment, increasing the knowledge and technical ability of our members.
Whether you have a camcorder, DSLR or just an i Phone it doesn't matter. If you are an actor, screenwriter or just want to be part of the film crew, come along and see us.
We have members from beginner to advanced level who cover all genres of filmmaking from Documentry, Narative Storytelling and even Music Videos. They are all willing to share their knowledge and help anyone who wants to improve their film making skills.
We hold an Annual Competition in which a variety of trophies are awarded including one for Best Film or Video, Best Narration, Best Edited and Sound Track. Throughout the year competitions are held for Best Holiday, Best Documentary and a competition for the Best Film, any genre not exceeding five minutes duration.
As well as competing in the internal Club competitions, members often enter films videos in external events such as Regional and National Film Festivals, some venturing into the International arena. The Club and its members have won over 250 awards in these competitions.
The club is actively involved in the community with other local organisations and charities, working together to produce first class DVDs of local events.
