BFI Film Academy at DCA Discovery Film School

This great opportunity is open to film enthusiasts aged 16 to 19, it’s a course funded by the BFI Film Academy Network which offers participants the chance to work with professionals to learn about the filmmaking process, from generating ideas right through to shooting, editing and screening your own finished film at DCA.

Created in partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI), the Film School offers a hands-on opportunity to develop practical knowledge and skills. Some of the films produced by previous groups have gone on to be nominated for national awards, and participants have been invited to join specialist skills development courses around the UK.

The course runs on Wednesday evenings from August to December, with two intensive weeks of activity in addition to these weekly sessions. Topics covered include camera operation, sound recording, lighting, editing, development of ideas, experimentation, exhibition and marketing; with talks from curators and industry professionals.

No experience of practical filmmaking is required to take part, but applicants should be able to demonstrate an interest in film and a commitment to the project. The cost to take part is £25, with bursaries available for anyone in need of assistance.
