BFI Film Academy

PURSUE A CAREER IN FILM

GMAC Film is since 2016 the Glasgow delivery partner for this course by the British Film Institute. The BFI Film Academy prepares 16-19-year olds to work in the film and TV industries. The course also includes a NCFE qualification in ‘Preparing to Work in The Film Industry’

Over the course of 15 weeks we… 

  • discuss film theory
  • learn technical film skills
  • make a short film
  • introduce you to industry professionals

After that, you can apply to The National Film and Television School BFI Easter Academy. This includes further access to an amazing range of exclusive opportunities for BFI Film Academy alumni. For example, specialist craft residentials and paid internships on film and tv productions.

Please note that you must be 16 to 19 years of age when the course starts and not at University.

At University and still want to learn? Check out our Summer School if you’re 16-19 years old, or our AS qualification “Moving Image Arts” for 16-25-year-olds.
