During the course of the programme there will be multiple opportunities for participants to network with film/TV industry professionals, and learn more about how to pitch their script to the industry.
The workshop will run from 20 - 22 April.

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.
