Film making courses, events & schools programmes for kids and young people

Young Film Academy (YFA) is the UKʼs leading provider of filmmaking courses, schools film making programmes, kids film parties and film making outreach events to young people aged 6-19.

Based in London, each year we work nationwide to help 7,500 young people complete their first digital films, from West End-premiered movies to curriculum-linked film projects in schools.

Young Film Academy is a hub partner for the British Film Institute (BFI) Film Academy Network, designing and delivering bespoke educational film projects for the UKʼs largest arts institutions, right down to small groups of kids who just want to have fun making movies at home...

So if you want to get kids involved in filmmaking - whether itʼs for a day, a week or a year, get in touch!
