UK Film School Community

Our social enterprise was established to address the need to give people from disadvantaged groups the opportunity to experience the benefits of filmmaking- to empower and enable them to shape their future in a positive way

Mission - to involve as many people as possible in the making of films

Whether for the pure enjoyment and fun of making a film, or for the discovery of untapped talent, skill or interest, we want to involve people of all ages and all abilities.


‘The best part of the experience was the sense of achievement, it was great to make something’
- Abigail- Student Aged 18

‘In our experience there is no limit to what can be achieved, regardless of individual disadvantage once the crucial opportunity is given in the first place.’
- Gary Halliday- Director
