The BFI Film Academy offers training for every film industry role, from writing and directing through to production, sound design, editing and camera, and provides learning around film history and cinematic storytelling to inspire an appreciation of film culture in the round.
This opportunity is open to any young person living in the Highlands and surrounding counties; participants would train for two days a week for three weeks in July, and would follow this up with 2 weekends of filming and editing in August.
