What is the BFI Film Academy?

The BFI Film Academy course covers every area of the filmmaking process, enabling young people aged 16-19 to gain an NCFE qualification in Working in the Film Industry. As well as developing their commercial and cultural knowledge and skills needed to help make a career in film a reality. After completing the course, young people will have the chance to gain support and progress onto a range of ongoing filmmaking opportunities.
