Filmmakers Lab is a membership-based filmmaking talent development initiative, dedicated to providing networking and skill building opportunities for filmmakers in Devon and further afield across the South West. Membership is open to all, but targeted at early-career filmmakers who have an aspiration to develop themselves further. Providing a platform for creative exploration and collaboration within the local film industry.
We hold monthly social meet-up sessions at Exeter Phoenix, the multi-arts venue in the heart of Devon. We offer a regular programme of creative workshops, guest speakers, masterclasses and film screenings for members to expand their knowledge and practice. There are also opportunities for members to discuss and explore ideas around their current filmmaking project in a constructively supportive environment.
Our long-term ambition is to support a growth of regional filmmaking talent and increase the quality of locally produced films. We also aim to raise awareness of the South West as a central hub for film production, to ultimately attract more productions to the region and create local job opportunities.
We are a not for profit organisation, any income generated from membership fees is spent on programming and developing the initiative and filmmakers involved. We are funded through support from Exeter City Council, Film Hub South West, and our partner organisation Exeter Phoenix.
