Birmingham BFI Film Academy 2020!

Are you passionate about film and looking for a career in the industry? 

BFI Film Academy is a hands on course for young people 16-19 passionate about film, sound, writing or production. Designed so you can do it whilst at college or work running Autumn half term and some weekend sessions.

Our Academy may look a little different this year due to COVID-19 but will still be a hot-house experience opening doors to the industry. You will work with industry professionals to produce a short film alongside online masterclasses, small group sessions and mentoring.  You will be able to accredit your film making through Arts Award qualification. We will be offering a range of filming techniques including phone, SLR and pro camera.  You’ll meet and network with film professionals who will support you throughout. We work with Yamination Studios in Birmingham to provide an industry film making experience through animation as an option too!
