Omar Robert Hamilton, Filmmaking Diploma
The films produced here are as good and in some respects better than many of the more high profile film schools in the UK. This is the right place for motivated and enthusiastic young filmmakers who want to develop their skills.
Sandy Lieberson, Film London
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
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
I learned everything from directing actors and lighting a scene to how to operate cameras – it was one of the best experiences of my life.
