BFI Film Academy

Are you aged 16-19? Are you passionate about Film? Apply now!

BFI Film Academy is a 7 day programme, where participants aged 16 - 19 (not at University) years get the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of filmmaking through a series of workshops and masterclasses, in which they get the chance to learn from, and work with, leading industry professionals.

Due to COVID-19, our upcoming Film Academy will be delivered mostly online via Zoom. However, as nothing can replace the filmmaking experience, industry standard safety measures are in place for shooting days.

We're looking for passionate and committed young people who have a love of film. You don't have to be currently studying media to apply.

We encourage BAME, LGBTQIA+, disabled persons as well as those from lower socio-economic backgrounds to apply.
