An intensive two-year course with a School located in the heart of London, the MA in Filmmaking from The London Film School trains to a professional level in a full range of filmmaking skills. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


Students in the Filmmaking  course from The London Film School  leave with a portfolio of directing, cinematography, editing, producing, production design and sound credits. The school produces a huge output of films each year on this particular programme, many of which are screened at key festivals annually, previously winning many prizes, including including at Locarno, Berlinale, Edinburgh, Cinéfondation.

Learning is based on short film production and our students make a new film each term. Each term these film exercises become more technically sophisticated, more considered and more complex in their ambitions. The school specifies the skill base for each exercise, providing the equipment and training students to new levels in each of the various craft skills. Students make all aesthetic decisions while solving problems similar to those faced by professional units, on a steeply increasing slope of difficulty. The work is constantly assessed and critiqued. 

This is the core of The London Film School method. Students learn by applying themselves to aesthetic and practical problems generated by the actual process of filmmaking. 

A Competitive Edge

All LFS students learn important filmmaking skills and practise them in a working unit. There is no film career that is not greatly enriched by an active practical knowledge of the other specialisations. This makes an LFS graduate stand out from future professional colleagues with a single specialisation, at any level.
