The intensity of the Diploma course, combined with a great deal of hard work, gave me a great grounding in all aspects of the film industry, short films on my showreel and friends from all over the world.
Rob Hall, LFA Graduate
After studying on the Filmmaking Foundation, I joined LFA's Filmmakers Club and made a short film ‘Jetpack Willy’, which went on to receive complete funding from Film 4 and launched my career.
David Palmer, Filmmaking Foundation
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.
Carlos Zoyzaya, Filmmaking Certificate
Building on what I learned at LFA, I have had a feature script optioned in LA plus a TV series optioned in the UK and greenlit by a broadcaster.

Being inspired is one of the most important things to feel in any industry but especially this one. I enjoy coming to class every morning, be it scriptwriting, cinematography, or sound - immersing and challenging myself within every department.
Tessa Von Erlach
The Diploma gave me an informed opinion of what area of film I wanted to go into and insider knowledge of how to do that.
Toby Matthews, Filmmaking Diploma
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
The standard of education at LFA enables students to go out into the industry with the skills and experience necessary to find professional employment.
John Ward, Steadicam Operator ('Full Metal Jacket', 'The Fifth Element', 'The Ninth Gate') and LFA tutor
I really think LFA is great. The facilities you need are always available to you.
