Birmingham BFI Film Academy 2021!

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 during 2020 looked a little different this year due to COVID-19, but it was still a hot-house experience opening doors to the industry. Get the chance to work with industry professionals to produce a short film alongside online masterclasses, small group sessions and mentoring.  By taking part, you are able to accredit your film making through an 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!
