BFI Film Academy returning to QUAD in October 2023 – Applications now open!
The BFI Film Academy is returning to QUAD this October and applications are now open for young people aged 16-19* who are passionate about a career in the film industry to apply.
The BFI Film Academy is a practical short course which has been designed to give young people an opportunity to gain invaluable experience to pursue a career in film. In addition to learning from industry professionals and networking with guest speakers, the BFI Film Academy includes hands-on filmmaking experience to develop practical knowledge and skills.
Working as part of the BFI Film Academy accreditation students will complete a portfolio to achieve a Silver Arts Award, a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification, in addition to producing their very own short film which will be screened to an audience on QUAD’s largest cinema screen.
A key element of the BFI Film Academy is working in collaboration with a group of peers to produce a short film. For this reason, attendance during the course is very important, and we do ask that you consider the time commitment when completing your application. If this is something that concerns you, please get in touch to arrange a chat with us.
Please complete the following application form by 5pm on 15th September 2023: https://bit.ly/ApplyToBFI
We will be in touch by Friday 22nd September to let you know if you have been successful with your application.
If you are unsure that the BFI Film Academy is for you, you can find the short films produced at QUAD, as well as interviews of previous participants about their experiences of the course on our YouTube channel: BFI Film Academy
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
