BFI Film Academy Labs
Monthly virtual events for young filmmakers.
The BFI Film Academy Labs are now 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 things become a bit more normal. We regularly host individual mentoring, workshop sessions and virtual networking 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.
