BFI Film Academy Labs
Monthly virtual events for young filmmakers.
The BFI Film Academy Labs 2020 Series is going virtual!
Our free monthly online events are designed to support young, aspiring filmmakers and help you develop your skills and projects from home. These practical sessions will be led by industry professionals and will focus on the specifics of trying to make the best of the current situation, continue learning and be ready with your projects when we come out of lockdown. You will be able to apply for individual mentoring and workshop sessions too. Each month there will also be a chance to win a prize from our competition partner LaCie.
BFI Film Academy Labs events are for 16-25 year olds and take place monthly on Saturdays through Zoom. The events are FREE, but registration with a valid email address is required through Eventbrite.
