Working with Young Film Academy is so totally practical. I have made films I’m so proud of and the contacts I’ve made have led to me work with Channel 4 and get work experience on professional sets. I couldn’t have done it without YFA.

Your Career Starts Here.
Young Film Academy's Summer University gives young filmmakers and screen actors aged 18-23 the chance to fulfil their potential and focus on what they want to do most: making films. YFA’s Summer University has been designed to be the most practical, hands-on creative filmmaking and screen acting experience. Students will work in teams to create and star in high-quality short films which can be used by actors and filmmakers alike to build their showreels and practical skills, giving them a springboard into the film industry. 

The camp is held at Kingston University, 30 minutes from Central London, and includes all board, meals, tuition and equipment and a showcase screening at BFI Southbank in front of an industry panel.

YFA Summer University has an application process to select highly motivated individuals for the Production course & Screen Acting course. Students on each course will develop specialised skills in their own disciplines though practical exercises, workshops and masterclasses delivered by industry professionals. 

After full days on set, students have the opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary and vibrant cultural life London offers. YFA offers optional evening activities to venture into central London, exploring cultural sites, landmarks and experiences, as well as relaxing and socialising with fellow cast and crew. 

At the end of the two-weeks, students will organise a premiere screening of their films at the British Film Institute (BFI Southbank) in front of an industry panel. This will be a unique opportunity to showcase films produced at YFA Summer University on the big screen, in one of the world’s most iconic cinema locations.
