Somerset Film is a registered charity trading as a company limited by guarantee dedicated to empowering individuals and communities through the use of film and digital technology. We are very fortunate to have two local patrons who are extremely experienced in their chosen fields and widely recognised for the quality of their work.

Our board of trustees is a group of widely experienced and talented members, from varying backgrounds and with a valuable range of complementary skills and expertise. We have a small core team (below) and regularly employ professional freelance artists, tutors and film-makers and call upon the skills of a growing and committed team of regular volunteers in the café and administration. If you would like to work with us then do get in touch.
Meet the Team
We train at least four bursary students each year, who receive a contribution towards expenses, alongside up to 20 school/university-age work placement students. We employ trainees on workshops, productions and community projects where appropriate. We also draw on the support of our Founding Friends, a group of individuals and organisations who have committed themselves to supporting the development of Somerset Film and The Engine Room.
