Friends of Talkies Tricia

Times are tight: Talkies is a volunteer-led, not for profit organisation, but we are finding funding from grants and sponsorships is in short supply.  Our audience is brilliant at supporting us, but subscribing as a  'Friend of Talkies'  would really help us to keep bringing great film events to your doorstep.

Tricia - on behalf of the Talkies Team


We hope with your support we can continue to be ambitious.

Friends’ investment will again be put towards commissioning and supporting young film makers. We are developing a strong reputation now for this programme and have supported 18 film makers over the past 4 years.

As a Friend, there are also opportunities to get involved in film making: for example in 2017 some of us were film extras and runners!  

Friends are also invited to special events and social occasions. So far these have included visits to BAFTA, Sands Studios, the Cinema Museum and a summer BBQ.

Starting with a blank canvas, learn how to develop a film script

Twice Bafta nominated director Yousaf Ali Khan is coming to the Writing Room in Wood Green. His courses are called Blank Canvas because they are designed for people with no previous experience, and no particular single idea for a script, to come along and explore what stories they might tell in film, and how. You can sign up to a 6-week story-development short script course, or to a one-day masterclass, looking at how a feature film script would be structured. Read more
