Love film and want
to get other people excited about it as well?

The neighbourhood film studio is a project that has been created with this in mind. It will support budding film-makers to make and enjoy films in the borough. Residents have created learning sessions where they will share some film making techniques to get you ready to create and submit to the DIY Film Festival which will showcase films about Barking and Dagenham.

No previous experience required.

About the project starters

We are 3 local residents, keen to support film making and sharing in the borough. With the upcoming possibility of Barking and Dagenham having its own large film studio, we started this project to support local people in getting more involved in fi lm and having a place for people to enjoy local creations.

Mark: “I have lived in the borough for 15 years and have helped run 2 college film societies.”

Simon: “I am a heritage photographer and I am keen to bring interesting and exciting events to the borough.”

Andy: “I have lived in this borough my whole life. I believe Barking has a lot of untapped creativity amongst the community and I believe this project will showcase their talent.”
