Programme 2020 – 2021

Meetings are being held on Zoom


All meetings are being held on Zoom at present.  The programme includes some informal "Chat Meetings" on the Thursdays which fall between the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.  Members are invited to let Debbie and Jill know if they have any suggestions for topics they would like to introduce at any "Chat Meeting" which hasn't yet got a subject listed.  These Thursdays are also ideal for the premieres of any member's latest film.

Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month between September and June,  and we usually start at 7.45 for 8pm. 

New Members, please note that during the year there are opportunities to engage in group film making and join in many activities which take place outside of the formal meeting times.
