LFA Pioneers Award - scholarship for an emerging female filmmaker
12 January 2018

 

We mark our 15th anniversary with the launch of the LFA Pioneers Award - a scholarship for a promising female filmmaker who might otherwise, due to financial constraints, not be able to access training. The Award gives a fully-funded place worth £23,000 on the LFA’s 12-month practical and fully comprehensive Filmmaking Diploma starting 7 MAY 2018

The founding patron of the award Baroness Kidron (Director, Writer & Producer ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’)  who has donated 50% of the course costs says:

“To lead a creative life you need fierce determination, some talent and a few lucky breaks.  It is my hope that this LFA Pioneers Award will be a lucky break for a determined woman of talent. Filmmaking is a wonderful profession and a wonderful craft and I hope that the recipient is just the first of an army of Pioneers who are gifted the skills and the opportunity to tell us their stories.”
