BFI Academy 2016 is recruiting NOW

Passionate about films and want to work in the film or television industry?


Building on the success of the last two years, shmu is once again working in partnership with the BFI and NESCOL to deliver Aberdeen's third BFI Academy course.

This prestigious course is targeted at young people (aged between 16-19) who have a passion for film-making and are interested in developing the skills that will help them work towards a career in the industry.

The 12 week course, made possible with an investment of just under £16,000 from the BFI, will run weekly from the end of October 2016 to mid-February 2017. The course will include Masterclasses from a range of industry professionals and the young people will produce two short films; from pitching ideas and writing the script, to shooting and editing the film. The project will culminate with a screening of the films at the Belmont Filmhouse.

The deadline for applying for the course is Friday 4th November 2016.
