Collaboration is crucial to filmmaking, and in keeping with this, one of the key criteria applied when selecting people for the diploma is there likely capacity for team work.

All my success relates back to Panico. Not only do you have access to advice from experienced tutors, but from Panico Club members.
Jamie Payne, Director, Foundation graduate
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.

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.
