The Film and Video Workshop

The Film and Video Workshop is an educational charity dedicated to helping children, young people and adults use multimedia as a creative tool for communication with our film and animation workshops.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    The Film and Video Workshop is dedicated to helping people make films and animation. We aim to work with as wide a range of people as possible and especially focus on those who are disadvantaged due to social, cultural and economic circumstances.

    Our Education Department runs projects for approximately 800 young people a year, mostly in schools but also in youth clubs, prisons, and community centres. Each year we run courses at our two sites for over 500 adults, from beginners to professionals in a variety of multimedia applications. We run The London International Animation Festival. We also facilitate projects for Tate Modern, National History Museum and The National Portrait Gallery. The majority of our participants come from deprived areas and suffer from barriers to education and employment.

    In all our work we aim to empower people through a careful guided learning process that achieves a positive outcome, explores creativity and encourages cooperation and communication.
