The BFI Film Academy scheme is providing opportunities for talented and committed young people between the ages of 16–19 to develop new skills and build a career in the film industry, no matter where they live or what their background.
Each residential course will focus on the complete craft and workflow of one of the different specialisms – animation, documentary, screenwriting or VFX – with leading industry professionals delivering masterclasses and practical skills training. Participants will also receive bespoke careers advice. This an intensive hot-housing course to be run during February half-term for between five and nine days.
Applications to take part in the specialist residential programme will open later in 2015.
