Katharina Wegenast, Filmmaking Certificate
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
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
It was a great experience, one I truly will never forget
Austin Lapierre, Graduate
LFA de-mystifies the production process, and gives you the technical knowledge to make your own films
Terry Jones, Writer, Director & Actor
While Academy work placements may help students get jobs…they will be better prepared to seize the opportunities when they arise, ahead of those with theoretical knowledge but no practical experience.
The Daily Telegraph
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
Today I have today a secure and successful career in film and television, thanks to knowledge gained at LFA.
Akbar Allana, Filmmaking Diploma
The Filmmaking Certificate course was, without doubt, the highlight of my year. Thank you to all the staff at LFA for a fantastic month where I had a great time, I made new friends and I learned a lot.
