Our innovative anti-smoking Cut Films project funded by Barnet Public Health working with young people in youth organisations and schools across Barnet.

Barnet cut films

We’re asking the young people of Barnet to enter our short film competition and help persuade their friends not to smoke.


We are offering free support through filmmaking and anti-tobacco workshops.


You can book anti-smoking workshops as one day sessions or over a longer period of time between 3-8 workshops of between 1-3 hours. Check out the type of sessions we offer here.
