Us and our origins

UEA filmmaking society was founded in 2016 and has been creating content since 2017. We've made short films, documentaries and now a webseries. As a university society, our goal is to create content for and by young people while providing ample filmmaking opportunities to students with any range of experience. 

Each year we have a member-elected committee leading the society. We lead some larger society-wide projects as well as providing guidance to members wanting to produce their own content. To provide this support, we work closely with the university and local organisations. 

Our current committee

Idunn Marthinsen

Originally from Norway, Idunn is currently in her third year of a film and television degree at UEA. She's directed one of our short films, Off. For our webseries, Relic, she's a showrunner, producer, editor and director. For the past two years, her interest in graphic design has influenced the society's branding and social media accounts.
