Become a friend

A-listers

A-listers is an inclusive film-making club for young adults with a learning disability in the Lewes area. They meet regularly and talk about movies, movie-craft and movie-making techniques. Then they go into pre-production mode to prepare for a proper film shoot and make their own short films. All mentored by film-making professionals and volunteers.

“The club, and what can be achieved through it, has given our members a real sense of worth; as well as company, friendships, a sense of belonging to something bigger; and a creative outlet, plus all the excitement of being involved in film-making projects; and all importantly, a voice in the wider world.”

Watch their Christmas thank you film here.

“We now have a core group of 10 members who count the days to our next club meeting, rising to 18 for some of our more ambitious collaborations.”

The club is focused on having a lot of enjoyable film-making fun! A-listers make friends, go on trips, attend workshops and learn real skills such as camera operating, focus-pulling, directing and acting in front of the camera. They are now quite experienced on film sets and understand the multi-take, multi camera way of working.

A-listers recently received a grant to make four films that they want to complete in time to enter the 2023 disability film festivals.
