BFI Film Academy is a 7 day programme, where participants aged 16 - 19 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 Academies will be delivered mostly online via zoom conference calls. However, as nothing can replace the filmmaking experience, we have put industry standard safety measures in place for the day students will spend filming on location. 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.

The courses cost £25 but don't worry if you're not able to pay the full course fee as costs may be waived. Bursaries for travel and childcare are also available.
We will also do everything we can to help you out with digital access, so if you don't have access to the internet or a suitable device please still apply!
