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
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
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
Superbly taught – an amazing experience. The course is very detailed and the tutors explain material and theory in an accessible way. Then we put theory into practice immediately via workshops.
Leah Margoye, Filmmaking Certificate
I have sharpened my focus on how the industry works and where I want to exist within it
Bradford Yates, Filmmaking Diploma 14
Going through all of the aspects of filmmaking in my one year at LFA has been a positive stepping stone into the professional world. This course helped me select Directing as a career path for the future.
Mehreen Hasan, Filmmaking Diploma
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
I believe that the teaching I received at the LFA was a key factor in being able to start a career in such a competitive industry. I honed my craft, using the skills I received on the course and obtained my first screenwriting job, which quickly led to my current position as Development Exec for Elstree Studio Productions.
Jake Rowlands, Screenwriting 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
My year at LFA was a fantastic investment. I have become a multi-skilled filmmaker and capable of making informed and well-grounded decisions during the whole production process.
