The London Film School (LFS) is one of the oldest-established film schools in the world and was created in 1956. In October the Principal of the Heatherley School of Fine Art, Gilmore Roberts, set up a short course in film making, but before the applicants could enrol, found that his school had been sold from under him.
The school operates as a working studio, producing around 180 films annually. Filmmakers gain credits on a minimum of ten films and graduation work. Students are taught by working filmmakers.
LFS offers MA, PhD and part-time workshops programmes focused on aesthetic achievement, craft excellence, creative collaboration and artistic freedom. It acts as a centre of inspiration for graduate students and working filmmakers, fostering professional development, innovation, research and scholarship across all practical areas of film.
London Film School offers a search engine powered by the SpeedyBooker Network. (Please note that all bookings are made via SpeedyBooker, not through LFS.)
The School Library keeps and documents LFS productions. LFS shows work at over 180 film festivals around the world each year, and supports sales of films to broadcasters and distributors. The library also holds an extensive collection of films for loan, plus a small collection of core books. Students have also access to the BFI Reference Library, which is within ten minutes walk.
The Students Union is affiliated with the NUS and LFS students are entitled to NUS Extra cards, offering a range of benefits. LFS is also affiliated to International student house/UCKISA. Our clubs and societies include the LFS Film Society and an LFS football team, which arranges matches against other film schools. LFS is a full member of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision), the international confederation of film schools, GEECT (European Grouping of Film and Television Schools) and NAHEMI (National Association for Higher Education in the Moving Image) the national association for british film schools.
We are recognised by Creative Skillset as a Centre of Excellence Film Academy.
