About the BFI Film Academy

As a student of the Film Academy, you will gain invaluable experience working alongside industry professionals who are respected practitioners in their field.

You’ll be able to explore your own creativity and passions in a supportive and dynamic environment.

What’s more, you could also apply for one of our two intensive residential programmes. Courses last between one and two weeks and are designed to develop more specialist filmmaking skills. You will work closely with leading industry professionals who will give you a unique insight into the filmmaking business and guide you along the way.
