An Introduction to South Downs Film Makers
About the Club
SDFM has held its meetings at Ferring Village Hall since 1990. Today, we have around 50 members. We meet twice monthly throughout the year, usually on the first and third Wednesdays and try to provide an interesting programme for our members. (available on this web site)
The club’s aims are:
- To encourage interest in film making as a hobby (Drama, Documentary & Comedy
- To help increase the knowledge and technical ability of our members
- To have fun and build friendships
Our monthly magazine Freeze Frame
Our club magazine, Freeze Frame, is published monthly (except August) and contains information on current affairs in the club, details of productions in progress and news of up-coming events.
Annual subscriptions are currently £45 per person / £70 per couple.
£18 Associate member. (restricted)
Several competitions are held throughout the year to encourage film making amongst our members. Some competitions are internal and others external where club films are entered into competition against those of other clubs, both regionally and nationally
The club is fortunate in owning two semi-professional Panasonic cameras and tripods, which are available for use in club productions. We also have a range of other equipment – including portable lights, microphones, royalty free music all of which are available for members’ use, free of charge
The club regularly provides film-shows to local groups – WI, church and social groups etc – in the community
Potential new members are always welcome to come along and join us for an evening. For more information please call Roy Powell tele: 01903 266606
