About_PicSignal Film & Media is an award-winning charity, which provides specialist creative film and digital media access from a dedicated base in Barrow-in-Furness

Since 2001 our team has provided a unique resource for people of all ages and backgrounds to access free facilities, professional tutoring and hands-on experience in creative digital media. We provide a welcoming and inclusive setting that supports participants to develop skills and flourish.

We are housed in Barrow’s Cooke’s Studios, a new £2m creative media centre, where our facilities include edit suites, training rooms and a 60-seat cinema.

We provide residencies for visiting artists to produce new work through access to studio space in the brand new Cookes Studios arts facility.

Our arts education programme engages local audiences and participants, whilst our mentoring scheme supports the development of emerging local talent.

Regular events with guest artists and filmmakers provide a forum for discussion, broadening engagement with diverse work and supporting development of a vibrant film and arts culture in the area.

We are a selected provider of the British Film Institute’s national Film Academy and as an artist-led company we have a substantial track record of producing award-winning films for exhibition, broadcast and the commercial sector.
