  • 40% off all Filmmaking courses at Exeter Phoenix (worth £24 per course)

Who’s it for?

Everyone! Whether you’re a writer, director, producer, actor, cinematographer, boom operator, script supervisor or just interested in filmmaking. Aimed at those in the early stages of their career, we will connect you to other local based filmmaking talent, provide professional training opportunities and on-going project support.

Our only restriction is that you must be based in the South West of England, which covers the counties of Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, as well as the Isles of Scilly. If you are unsure as to whether your location is included in the South West of England then please do drop us an email:

How much is it?

Just £2.10 a month - a full year's membership works out at £25.20. Once set up, a monthly subscription will run for as long as you want it. You can set yours up via PayPal here:

If you are having difficulty covering the cost of your membership, travel to our sessions, or additional access and support costs are required then extra help is available. Please email the Film Hub South West at with your full name, postal address and an outline of the costs/areas you require additional financial support in order to make the membership scheme accessible to you.

We're a not-for-profit organisation. That means every penny you give us goes right back into providing the best support for filmmakers and filmmaking in Devon. As we're a developing organisation, we're always keen to hear any ideas about how we might do that.
