Welcome to Bristol Film and Video Society.

All aspects of film making are covered at our twice monthly meetings which STILL run throughout the year!

Under the present lockdown we are a virtual club; all our meetings take place via Zoom!

Why not come to our next one? All normal club fees are suspended until the lockdown is over, but we still have guest speakers, 'how to' sessions and, yes, practical events!

Email us to find out how.

We look forward to “seeing” you soon.



Next meeting: Via Zoom

Tuesday 1st December, 7.30pm

Multimedia Extravaganza Evening

Sound effects (or Foley) are an essential part of professional film making but there's lots of scope to use them in amateur films and your musical score options are endless from using library music to getting music composed to even using artificial intelligence to compose your soundtrack.

This session led by John Cockwell, Neal Tucker and Mark Harrison looks at how you can add sound effects and music to your films through two recent projects where they worked together to create sound effects, new dialogue and specially composed music for two old BFVS films one of which was silent and the other missing any kind of soundtrack.

New feature!

This year’s Zoom presentations are now being made available on line. The first batch has been uploaded and more will be added as they are produced. Their permanent home is the new ‘presentations’ option under ‘’RESOURCES’ on the top menu.

Just for now you can also watch them here.
