We are thrilled to announce that we are making our move to Metro Screen a formal and very happy association. We look forward to seeing you there from now on in the Studio just round from Paddington Town Hall at the Chauvel Cinema entrance. Metro Screen is a great place to know about as it offers excellent short courses in filmmaking and digital techniques. Since moving to our new premises we’ve had fantastic feedback from our audiences and speakers about the space and we are hoping to shape an events calendar that will take advantage of the studio setting.
