Collaboration is crucial to filmmaking, and in keeping with this, one of the key criteria applied when selecting people for the diploma is there likely capacity for team work.
The Guardian, Shooting Stars
After studying on the Filmmaking Foundation, I joined LFA's Filmmakers Club and made a short film ‘Jetpack Willy’, which went on to receive complete funding from Film 4 and launched my career.
David Palmer, Filmmaking Foundation
No one was ever hired in the film industry on the basis of a paper qualification, making it in this competitive industry is a question of skills and contacts and that’s exactly what we give our students at the LFA.
Lou Spain LFA consultant, Independent Producer
The commitment of the tutors is very strong and I appreciated being in touch with them even after my year of studies.
Jean Philippe Gossart, LFA Graduate
The LFA Screenwriting Diploma is particularly useful since its academic objectives are tied into LFA’s commitment to faithfully reflect the conditions of real world filmmaking, where the pressures and challenges of development and production are an intrinsic part of the process. The necessity of rewriting is often omitted from less grounded portrayals of the craft, at LFA it is front and centre from day one.
Michael Holden, Screenwriter
The LFA Showcase kick-started everything for me. It helped get me an agent, meetings with production companies and invitations to several film festivals.
Tom Rowson, Filmmaking Diploma Graduate
The Foundation course gave me the confidence to pursue my career as a director. Following the course I made my first film through Club Panico, with most of the crew being fellow students. I am now represented by an agent and have made several award-winning films.
Rachel Tillotson, Director, Foundation Graduate
Building on what I learned at LFA, I have had a feature script optioned in LA plus a TV series optioned in the UK and greenlit by a broadcaster.
