As part of a nationwide network, the BFI Film Academy is an advanced programme for young people aged 16 to 19. Learners undergo intensive development to understand film via screenwriting, production, cinematography, sound recording, directing, acting and editing, with the addition of an industry masterclass and progression support towards education and the workplace.

SEE delivers two Academies in Scotland: a Network programme each September to February for young people across Edinburgh & South East Scotland; and the BFI Film Academy Scotland Residential each August for young people across the UK.

Learners also study for the BFI/Screen Skills ‘Preparing to Work in the Film Industry’ qualification, which is embedded into our Network programme.

BFI Film Academy Edinburgh & South East Network course will re-open for applications in July.
