BFI Film Academy

Broadway trains and inspires the next generation of filmmakers.

As a course provider for the BFI Film Academy UK Network Programme for the past nine years, Broadway has helped talented young people from every background take their first step into a career in the film industry.

After developing their practical knowledge and skills through training led by award-winning experienced professionals working across all roles in the film industry, course participants team up to make short films that are premiered at a special gala screening with a public Q&A at Broadway.

Successful alumni stories include paid traineeships on major feature film productions, including: Solo: A Star Wars Story, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Bond 20: No Time To Die, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
