London Film School

  • About
    The London Film School is the oldest-established international school of film technique in the world, at 50 in 2006. Rather than try and create a national cinema, as so many government-funded schools have done, LFS from the outset fostered a broad, craft-based culture of excellence with students from more than 80 countries.

    The London Film School is proud to be a Skillset Screen Academy. Skillset is the industry body which supports skills and training for the UK audio visual industries. London Film School is one of two graduate schools across the UK recognised by Skillset as a Centre for Excellence.

    The School is a registered charity, a non-profitmaking company, limited by guarantee.

    The School has always been completely independent, and remains so following the validation of its course by London Metropolitan University.

    The London Film School building was previously a warehouse, and has a rough workshop atmosphere which can be exciting, but is not academic and certainly not luxurious. We offer guided tours around the school on Thursday afternoons throughout the term which includes a chance to look at some student films. Facilities at the LFS include:

    Studios
    Two studios equipped with lighting rigs are available for the 35mm exercises, as well as a rehearsal studio, used also for drama and script workshops.

    Cinemas
    Projection facilities are available in two cinemas for 16mm, 35mm and Video.

    Editing
    The LFS editing rooms are equipped with analogue16mm and 35mm Steenbecks and Picture/Sound synchronisers. There are 8 off-line nonlinear Avid suites, as well as 14 iMacs with Final Cut and Avid Media Composer, and Avid Symphony for image and sound finishing on digital formats.

    Coffee Bar
    The school has a privately-run coffee bar on the ground floor.

    Clubs and Societies
    Our clubs and societies include the Film Society who organise regular screenings and masterclasses. The LFS football team arranges matches against other universities and film schools. Students are admitted free to many of the film programmes at the National Film Theatre. LFS is a full member of CILECT, (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinema et de Television), the international confederation of film schools; AMPE, (Association of Media Practice Educators) and NAHEMI (National Association for Higher Education in the Moving Image), the national confederations of British film schools.
