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 online via Zoom. However, as nothing can replace the filmmaking experience, industry standard safety measures are in place for participants to get hands-on experience with filmmaking equipment.

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.
