We are delighted to announce that we will be delivering the BFI Film Academy programme for 2020/21.


This will be the 9th year we have delivered the course!

The programme runs on Saturdays between the 31st October 2020 - 20th February 2021 giving you the chance to develop professional level skills in film theory, specialist production skills and ends with you producing your own short film. Fully supported by industry professionals, this is your chance to get involved with the UK's most prestigious filmmaking programme for young people.

The course traditionally runs from an easily accessible venue in Lincoln City Centre, however due to the ongoing restrictions relating to COVID-19 there is a possibility that the 2020/21 course will be delivered electronically. We will of course provide ongoing updates throughout the application process.


The deadline for applications is 5pm on 17th October 2020
