BFI Academy

On Tuesday 11th October, our National 5 and Higher Media class welcomed Brian Robinson from BFI Film Academy Edinburgh to share an exciting opportunity in filmmaking.The Academy is looking for young people with a passion for film and looking to make a career out of the film industry. 

Starting over the weekend of the 4th and the 5th of November and running until the 21st January, participants will receive a comprehensive training in storytelling, production, sound recording, directing, editing and camera and will shoot and edit their own short film. Working with key organisations and individuals within the Film Industry, they will be provided with an understanding of the commercial industry, cultural knowledge of the film value chain and the skills they need to help make a career in film a reality.

Applications are open now and will close at 5pm on Friday 20th of October, on the BFI Film Academy website, or ask Mrs Collins for help.
