A film school with a Conscience
Central Film School delivers relevant, practical training in filmmaking and screenwriting in a supportive, collaborative and creative filmmaking environment. Small and friendly, the school provides continuous access to tutors and one of the highest student-to-equipment ratios of any school in the UK.
Central Film School is a partner of the Bertha Foundation, a charitable organisation whose mission is to create more progressive and just societies through activism, media, law and enterprise. The foundation champions forms of activism that aim to bring about change and works with a network of people who they believe can change the world - activists working with storytellers and lawyers. In line with the Bertha Foundation’s goals, Central Film School aims to nurture talent and support content creation that can achieve a specific impact.
Central Film School: the Academy of Intelligent Media aims to be highly selective in choosing talented students who have compelling stories to tell. At the same time, Central, unlike other film schools, aspires to be non-elitist and not just be a school for rich kids. We are in the process of setting up scholarships and bursaries to support those with strong stories to impart.
Located in the heart of creative London, the school has small classes and all of our tutors are working industry professionals.
Film Training is an investment
Film training needs to be regarded as investment in your future, not as a luxury product. All of the teaching at the school is designed to prepare you for entry to the film industry and we are very clear that paper qualifications are of little use when seeking employment in this industry. The contacts you make and the work you produce are far more likely to open the door for any graduate in filmmaking.
