Our Club was formed over fifty years ago as a cine club but these days everything is video although we still use the word films for what we make. At the end of 2010 we changed our name from Wyre Forest Camcorder Club to Kidderminster VideoMakers to better define where we meet. We also moved to a more comfortable location, the St Ambrose Parish Hall, that is behind the Catholic Church in Birmingham Road with ample parking accessed via Leswell street.

The purpose of the Club is to encourage and engage in all aspects of film/video making. Whether you are interested in script writing, shooting video, editing, sound, the technical aspects of cameras and editing systems or simply watching other people's amateur videos then Kidderminster VideoMakers is the place for you.
The Club meets on alternative Thursdays from September through to the following April each year at St Ambrose Parish Hall, DY10 2BY, that is behind the Church and is best approached via its car park off Leswell Street. See Club Location page for more detail. Groups of members also meet at other times to produce videos, often for outside agencies.
We have a varied programme of events throughout the winter that includes talks from well known amateur and professional video makers, technical talks and demonstrations on editing and sound systems, evenings to view our own and other club's videos and, of course, competitions. The full programme for the year is shown on the Programme page. Details of the various competitions are shown towards the end of the Constitution page.
