We are currently looking for enthusiastic 16-19 year olds to take part in the BFI Film Academy.
The academy will take place on Saturdays at Showroom Cinema in Sheffield from November 2017 – January 2018. The course is an incredible experience for anyone interested in the arts, or who would like to pursue a career in the film industry.
It is a hands-on film course that gives students the opportunity to experience masterclasses and workshops with industry professionals in areas such as editing, script-writing, directing, producing, cinematography, acting and animation. They will gain invaluable filmmaking experience and have the exciting opportunity to work in groups to produce their own short film, guided by highly skilled and experienced practitioners.
As well as this, students can gain a Silver Arts Award accreditation – a Level 2 qualification on the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF).
The programme costs £25, but bursaries are available to cover this as well as any travel/childcare costs if required. Students will also receive a free cinema pass for Showroom, entitling them to unlimited screenings throughout their time on the course. We highly encourage young people to apply from backgrounds often underrepresented within the film industry.
Please could you share this opportunity with anyone who may be interested and find this beneficial! To find out more information and to download the application pack then you can visit https://www.showroomworkstation.org.uk/filmacademy.
