The AmmA Centre has been delivering the BFI Film Academy weekly from September 2018 to 21 students aged 16-18 from across the borough.

This programme offers young people the chance to be part of our future film industry.  Students obtained hands-on experience in filmmaking and participated in masterclasses with industry professionals, learning what it takes to make it in the film world.  In groups they produced two short films which were showcased at the event, highlighting the skills they had acquired throughout the programme.  

Completing this programme has also enabled the students to work towards gaining an NCFE Award qualification.
