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 LFA gave me the opportunity to learn as much as I could about editing, in particular the editing process, and the different software used within the industry. I always knew I wanted to be an editor but the LFA gave me the tools to become a professional one.Lior Lovitz, Filmmaking Diploma
