Visit LFA, meet the staff and see what we have to offer
After I attended the course, I returned home and worked my way up as a PA on TV productions. I really think the Filmmaking Certificate was the best thing I could have done to carve a career in filmmaking.
Pietro Ponticelli, Filmmaking Certificate
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
While Academy work placements may help students get jobs…they will be better prepared to seize the opportunities when they arise, ahead of those with theoretical knowledge but no practical experience.
The Daily Telegraph
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
My year at LFA was a fantastic investment. I have become a multi-skilled filmmaker and capable of making informed and well-grounded decisions during the whole production process.
Dave Cray, Filmmaking Diploma
I have sharpened my focus on how the industry works and where I want to exist within it
Bradford Yates, Filmmaking Diploma 14
It was wonderful to be taught by working professionals whose wealth of knowledge was very humbling...I was able to gain a much more practical sense of what the film industry is like.
Rocky Palladino, Diploma Graduate
LFA is a much needed addition to training for an industry that needs all the talent and skills it can get
Lord Puttnam CBE
A complete and intensive ‘hands-on’ experience. Excellent tutors with great facilities and equipment, especially the editing suites and set-building studios.
Patricia Delso Lucas, Filmmaking Foundation
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.
