London Film School

London Film School (LFS) is internationally celebrated for its commitment to film, craft excellence, innovation and creative freedom. The School is consistently rated as one of the top international film schools.

We are recognised by ScreenSkills as a Centre of Excellence Film Academy. 

Currently located in Covent Garden LFS is the first film school in the UK.  Deeply connected to local and international screen industries, we have alumni spanning the globe, and working in every part of the film industry.  Our students and alumni have won every major award in the screen industries, and we continue to foster and nurture the next generation of filmmakers. During 2017, films created at the School had around 200 festival entries, screening films globally. The list spanned Cannes, Venice, Tribeca, Clermont-Ferrand International Film Festival, The BFI London Film Festival, Edinburgh, Encounters, Oscars, and Sundance.

LFS alumni are established in film and television production in more than eighty countries. The long list includes world-renowned filmmakers, including Mike Leigh, seven times Oscar nominee, winner of Cannes' Palme d'Or and Venice Golden Lion, to name just a few of the many accolades received throughout his long career as a leading filmmaker. Other distinguished alumni include world-renowned filmmakers such as Michael Mann, Ann Hui and Duncan Jones to writers David Thomson and Iain Sinclair as well as emerging talents like Gonzalo Maza, co-writer of ‘Una Mujer Fantástica’ (‘A Fantastic Woman’), winner of Best Foreign Language Film at the prestigious 90th Academy Awards. 

With around 220 full-time students, from over 30 countries, we are a dynamic hub for high-quality filmmaking activity, preparing creative storytellers for the world’s screen industries. We offer three full-time MA programmes, a PhD Film by Practice, and a full calendar of short courses.

The School is committed to collaborative practice-based learning and produces over 180 films every year. The result is a dynamic and intensive film environment which creates global networks for life. Every role within LFS plays a key part in shaping future creative professionals, impacting on the future of the global creative industries.

As the School recently turned 60, and with a planned move to a new home, LFS is on the verge of a new chapter in its history. It’s an exciting time to join us.

London Film School is a non-profit educational charity with Greg Dyke as its Chairman of the Board and Gisli Snaer as its Director.
