About the BFI Film Academy Network Programme

After two hugely successful years  Watershed and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School have received funding from the British Film Institute (BFI) to deliver the BFI Film Academy Bristol. The BFI Film Academy Network Programme aims to help train and inspire the next generation of British filmmakers, supporting talented and committed young people aged 16-19 to develop the knowledge and skills to help make a career in film a reality. The BFI Film Academy offers training for every film industry role, from writing and directing through to production, sound design, editing and camera, and provides learning around film history and cinematic storytelling.

The BFI Film Academy forms a key part of the BFI’s ambitious plans to revolutionise film education for 5-19 year olds, a core aim of the BFI’s Film Forever five year plan to support the future success of UK film. Film Academy funding partners include the Department for Education in England, the National Lottery, Creative Scotland and Northern Ireland. Strategic partners include BAFTA, Pinewood Studios and Creative Skillset, helping to ensure the Academy is a gold standard film industry-focused educational programme.
