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
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
LFA gave me the confidence and the technical knowledge needed to go out and put my own projects together.
Omar Robert Hamilton, Filmmaking Diploma
Being inspired is one of the most important things to feel in any industry but especially this one. I enjoy coming to class every morning, be it scriptwriting, cinematography, or sound - immersing and challenging myself within every department.
Tessa Von Erlach
Everyone knows enough to be able to do every role, and each film is tacked with professionalism

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
To produce work of such high quality in such a short space of time is astounding. I would hotly recommend the LFA to anyone thinking of a film career.
