BFI Film Academy Norwich

BFI Film Academy Norwich

Are you 16-19? Passionate about film?


The BFI Film Academy aims to help train and inspire the next generation of UK filmmakers, supporting talented and committed young people aged 16-19 to develop the commercial and cultural knowledge and skills to help make a career in film a reality.
The BFI Film Academy offers training for every film industry role, from writing and directing through to production, sound design, editing and camera, and provides learning around film history and cinematic storytelling to inspire an appreciation of film culture in the round.
For the first time, the course will be held at The Media Suite at the University of East Anglia. A truly world class institution providing an inspiring, professional working environment.
The course takes a hands-on approach to filmmaking through a combination of workshops and practical skills development. Finally, after an action-packed week, the cast and crew, friends and family are invited to enjoy a premiere of the completed films. Participants also have the opportunity to gain their Silver Arts Award.
The Norwich course has been especially designed for young people with some, demonstrable film making experience. A high mentor: young film maker ratio means there are very limited places available for this fast - paced, fun and practical film challenge. Working with our award-winning industry professionals, on our 6-day film school you will embark on a whistle-stop tour of film - writing, editing, camerawork and even special effects!
