Haywards Heath Movie Makers

Who we are

Formed in 1949, Haywards Heath Movie Makers is one of the foremost non-commercial filmmaking clubs in the South of England. We have an active membership from novices to more experienced movie makers with many awards being won nationally and internationally, not only by the club, but also by individual members.

We are proud of our heritage, but also look forward with confidence to the future.

Did you know?

When our club was established most members used either 9.5mm or 16mm ciné cameras to make their films. The film had to be sent to a laboratory for processing before the results could be viewed and the edit begun.

Today we shoot in high definition using various digital formats. The trend at the moment is for cameras that record to SD card. Results can be viewed instantly and video editing is much easier and more creative than in the past.

Club Meetings

We meet monthly on the Zoom platform, which enables a wider selection of speakers from across the country, and indeed from across the world. These meetings are supplemented by outside visits and get-togethers for those living locally.
