Once a church, our beautiful premises is now home to film worshippers like you. When you’re not filming in one of our two studios or watching the first cut of your latest project in our onsite cinema, you’ll be able to enjoy the artisanal restaurants, bars, cinemas and green spaces...
Our cinema boasts a Sony 4K digital projector and Cambridge Audio 7.1 Surround Sound with Subwoofer. You’ll screen your graduation film here, as well as attend regular film screenings and masterclasses with industry professionals.
Our JW Studio is named after our beloved past tutor and world-renowned camera and steadicam operator John Ward (‘The Fifth Element’, ‘Full Metal Jacket’). The studio is situated at the top of the premises where you’ll use it for workshops, film shoots and as a place to let your set design skills thrive with our stage sets and selection of props.
Our classrooms are equipped with video, DVD and computer playback through TVs and/or projectors, providing you with the best learning environment for lessons ranging from screenwriting to producing and more.
