BFI Film Academy

BFI Film Academy at MediaActive

To help develop the next generation of British film industry talent the lead body for film in the UK, the British Film Institute (BFI), in partnership with BAFTA, Pinewood Studios and the Department for Education are now offering young people aged 16 to 19 years industry based training and work experience through the national BFI Film Academy Network.

The BFI Film Academy is the British Film Industry’s gold standard talent development programme, and last year’s programme delivered by MediaActive, one of the BFI’s Network of UK Partners, included:

Working on a ‘real life’ film commission, collaborating with award winning animators and filmmakers, learning about all aspects of film and animation production, as well as idea and script development, practical animation and filmmaking techniques, editing, sound design, music, special effects and how to get your work screened.

If you are thinking about a career in the creative or film industries, as a writer, filmmaker, animator, designer or producer, this opportunity will really help to broaden your portfolio and will allow you to stand out from the crowd.
