We are excited to deliver the BFI Film Academy in Glasgow in partnership with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This year we will be exploring Short Film.

If you’re interested in watching, discussing and making films and want to pursue a career in the film and television industry, then the BFI Film Academy is the place to start. Over the course of 15 weeks we will discuss film theory, make a short film and introduce you to industry professionals.

After completion you, you can apply to The National Film and Television School BFI Easter Academy which will take place in the Easter break 2017.


The BFI Film Academy will run every Saturday from November 2016 to February 2017. You must be 16 to 19 years old on the 5th of November to apply and you cannot be at University. Applications will open early September and we will be holding an OPEN DAY on the 17th of September where you can hear from our Alumni, ask questions and get some support with your application form.
