No short cuts from the LFA. All films we receive are well documented and of a very high standard, certainly a Film School we are proud to be associated with.

The Diploma gave me an informed opinion of what area of film I wanted to go into and insider knowledge of how to do that.
Toby Matthews, Filmmaking Diploma
LFA is a much needed addition to training for an industry that needs all the talent and skills it can get
Lord Puttnam CBE
I believe that the teaching I received at the LFA was a key factor in being able to start a career in such a competitive industry. I honed my craft, using the skills I received on the course and obtained my first screenwriting job, which quickly led to my current position as Development Exec for Elstree Studio Productions.
Jake Rowlands, Screenwriting Diploma
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
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
LFA de-mystifies the production process, and gives you the technical knowledge to make your own films
Terry Jones, Writer, Director & Actor
It was a great experience, one I truly will never forget
Austin Lapierre, 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
I had the best experience with London Film Academy. The tutors are amazing, they are teaching us every single aspect of filmmaking, and they're always ready to help us in every situation
