Brisbane Movie Makers

Storytelling through the lens

Brisbane Movie Makers (BMM) is an inclusive and friendly club of  passionate, amateur movie makers, who meet twice monthly to network, learn, share and plan projects together. Whilst being a not-for-profit and 'amateur' club, we enjoy the company of members with diverse backgrounds, skills and experience, including a few with professional standing.


'The learning journey is way more fun if you have buddies to share it with.' Glenn Bruce

The theme of the next Ugg Competition is 'People, Passions, Persuasions'.

Do you know a person who is not a celebrity, who is passionate about something and doing amazing things? 

How could you present their story in the most interesting way in a short film?

Focus: Effective use of cutaways.

The alternative theme is 'Getting There'.


Club meetings offer: guest speakers; technical and creative sessions, upcoming movie crew opportunities; network opportunities; movie screenings; and editing challenges.


BMM offers a range of movie projects throughout any year. These may include:

Carefully planned and scripted short films; 

Casual filming and editing opportunities;

The chance to develop your film ideas.


One of the major strengths of BMM is the depth of knowledge and experience in its long term members. If you are looking for a personal mentor or coach to develop your movie making skills, BMM members are only too happy to assist you.


BMM offers many opportunities for recognition. These include:

  • Showing your productions to a keen audience
