Welcome to Bristol Film and Video Society.


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


We are now back to being an (almost) fully functional club after nearly a year and a half of holding our meetings on Zoom.


With several outdoor activities and a fully ventilated clubroom we can now enjoy the meetings we are used to.


Why not come to our next one?

Following on from this year's BFVS productions

 and in particular the Mini Epics

LEARNING LESSONS AND PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE - WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT AND WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO IMPROVE?



 All aspects - editing, post production, planning and shooting


Discuss the results of this year's Mini Epics

Experience / lessons learnt from the shoot

The edit and sound - what did the editors think of the rushes?


Lessons for the future

Special effects - how did those doing post-production find doing these?


But it is not just Mini Epic, all these lessons apply to Documentaries as well and to larger drama productions.


Taking the lessons into other, bigger productions. Amateurs often have to film against the clock with little or no time for rehearsal, even (or more so) on big productions. Both technical and on the artistic side.

Current Productions contains 35 short extracts of films from our archive. contains over 130 full length productions
