Wessex Films is an award-winning filmmaking society. We are dedicated to facilitating practical filmmaking for all our members and we provide tuition for a variety of fundamental practices through exciting workshops and tutorials during the entire academic year. We host meetings every Wednesday and all sorts of socials in between. Whether you'd like to write, act, edit, direct, operate cameras, work special effects, compose music, record foley, storyboard, create concept artwork or more, there's plenty of opportunities to pursue. We welcome all levels and abilities, with no previous experience required. So if you're passionate about film, why not get involved?
