About Sutton Filmmakers

At Sutton Filmmakers, we believe that a passion for film can strike anyone, at any age.

In today’s world understanding how movies are created and shared is a major part of everyone’s experience.

Sutton Filmmakers is about local

We realise that many local people would enjoy acting in, or shooting their own films, but do not have access to the right skills or equipment to make that dream a reality. We believe that filmmaking is a creative team effort.

The club was founded 20+ years ago by a group of local filmmakers who wanted to create a space where they could connect with other like-minded individuals and collaborate on creative projects. Since then, the club has grown in size and scope, attracting members from all over the area who are passionate about film and eager to explore the art of filmmaking.

Our club is open to everyone who loves films and is interested in exploring the art of filmmaking. We welcome filmmakers of all levels, from beginners to professionals, and we offer a supportive environment where you can learn and grow your skills.

What Sutton Filmmakers is about

Our club meetings are a great opportunity to network with other filmmakers, collaborate on projects, and gain valuable feedback on your work. We regularly host screenings, workshops, and guest speakers, and we encourage our members to get involved in organizing and hosting events themselves.

So, if you are passionate about filmmaking and want to be part of a vibrant community of creatives, join us at our next club meeting. Your input and ideas are crucial in shaping the future of our club, and we can’t wait to hear from you!

These days everyone wants to write, direct and produce. Extensive shifts in digital technology have enabled any would-be filmmaker to get creative at home. However, as our club chairman, Peter Leverick, points out; “Putting your clips together into a coherent production can still be tricky.”  Since 2004 the SFM has enabled club members to widen their horizons and achieve success: Including winning various short-film festivals and competitions. Members’ extensive output has covered everything from original drama (both features and shorts), comedies and music videos to sponsored projects for community groups.
