London Film School




LFS celebrated 50 years of work in 2006. Since 1956 the school has trained thousands of directors, cinematographers, editors and other film professionals now working across the globe. It is the most truly international school anywhere, with 70% of its students from outside Britain. This diversity fits very well in the melting pot of London.

In 2006 our films played at 80 festivals including Tampere, Angers, Clermond Ferrand, Venice, New York and London, and won 25 awards including ten first prizes. Also in 2006 the school became one of six Skillset Screen Academies, marked out as a centre of excellence. LFS graduates were selected for The Binger Institute and the Cannes Residence Scheme. In 2006 we took on our first Craft Extension participants on one-year residencies in the craft departments for those who want to hone specific skills. From 2007 we are building up our programme of professional development teaching as LFS WORKSHOPS and our continuing series of filmmaker masterclasses.

We teach through filmmaking, on stages, and in workshops rather than in classrooms -- the building functions like a studio. On the MA Filmmaking you'll work on a minimum of six films, at least two as director, with all costs included in fees. They'll be mostly on film, including two 10 minute 35mm studio/location drama exercises. You'll get over £3,000 back to spend on your graduation film. With just 125 participants, the MA Filmmaking generates over 170 finished films a year. It's an exceptionally busy place
