The LFA Screenwriting Diploma is particularly useful since its academic objectives are tied into LFA’s commitment to faithfully reflect the conditions of real world filmmaking, where the pressures and challenges of development and production are an intrinsic part of the process. The necessity of rewriting is often omitted from less grounded portrayals of the craft, at LFA it is front and centre from day one.
Michael Holden, Screenwriter
It was wonderful to be taught by working professionals whose wealth of knowledge was very humbling...I was able to gain a much more practical sense of what the film industry is like.
Rocky Palladino, Diploma Graduate
LFA gave me so much, not only in education but also in a sense of self-discovery
Aidar Balatov, Filmmaking Diploma Graduate
LFA introduced me to filmmaking and it was the beginning of a beautiful journey.
Christine Cheung, Filmmaking Foundation
The films produced here are as good and in some respects better than many of the more high profile film schools in the UK. This is the right place for motivated and enthusiastic young filmmakers who want to develop their skills.
Sandy Lieberson, Film London
A complete and intensive ‘hands-on’ experience. Excellent tutors with great facilities and equipment, especially the editing suites and set-building studios.
Patricia Delso Lucas, Filmmaking Foundation
I had the best experience with London Film Academy. The tutors are amazing, they are teaching us every single aspect of filmmaking, and they're always ready to help us in every situation
Cecilia Fasciani - Documentary Certificate
After I attended the course, I returned home and worked my way up as a PA on TV productions. I really think the Filmmaking Certificate was the best thing I could have done to carve a career in filmmaking.
Pietro Ponticelli, Filmmaking Certificate
To produce work of such high quality in such a short space of time is astounding. I would hotly recommend the LFA to anyone thinking of a film career.
Michael Ayers, Actor
The course taught me so much in such a short amount of time that just a couple months after finishing, another student friend and I won third place in an International television contest with our short film.
