London


VES London is the UK branch of the global Visual Effects Society, a non-profit, professional, honourary society dedicated to the promotion and education of the art. We achieve these goals through events that showcase local talent and unite industry professionals, as well as foster communication with the wider community.

 

For our members, we show loads of free movies in private cinemas throughout the year, many with free drinks both before and after the screenings. We also put on other events, from excellent parties to educational opportunities. All this is to encourage more socialising and exchange of information & ideas, which is what a society is all about!

For non-members and prospective members we have a few open events, including our regular monthly pub night and our bi-annual sponsored membership drive party. If you are not yet a VES member, please join the 'friends of the VES' Pub Night mailing list to get notifications of any upcoming open events by contacting us at hello@ves.london !
