Event description



This year we are making our interview process even easier by allowing you to interview over skype or by sending us your showreel.

The National Youth Film Academy are looking for the best young Film makers and Actors in the UK. Are you one of them?

To become a member of the National Youth Film Academy you must take part in and successfully complete our Breakthrough Course. The course will identify and hone your talent as a filmmaker and actor with two weeks spent training in your chosen field, learning from well-respected industry professionals and meeting with like-minded individuals to write, film and produce your very own short film. In the past, we have had guest speakers such as:

Simon Bird: Actor - The Inbetweeners

Ian Canning: Producer - The Kings Speech, Macbeth

Jason Flemyng: Actor - X Men: First Class, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrel

Karen Lyndesy Stewart: Casting Director - Harry Potter

Gareth Edwards: Director - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Godzilla

Geoff Boyle: DOP - Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Dark Ascension

Paul Alexander: Writer - Red Dwarf, Emmerdale

To name but a few...

Why do I need to audition/interview?

Out of hundreds of applicants, we only ever select a few to come on our Breakthrough Course. Interviewees are selected based on positive attitude and those who demonstrate huge potential to work professionally in TV & Film.

Audition/Interview Process

Auditions and iterviews are very informal and relaxed and will take place online over our online interview platform. Once you have made your booking we will send you more information on what to prepare/what will be expected of you.

Why do we charge for the auditions/interviews?

The National Youth Film Academy is an organisation dedicated to helping the best and brightest young filmmakers and actors in the UK. Our courses are industry recognised and of the highest quality and we charge to cover the cost of the course itself in which we invest in the best quality equipment, venue, masterclasses etc.

Limited Spaces

We only ever audition a maximum of 1000 people for each course and spaces go quick!
