With fantastic facilities, dedicated industry lecturers and speakers and a central location in a filmmakers city such as Brighton, our mission is to deliver practical courses and train the next generation of talented filmmakers wishing to enter the British film industry.

Our flagship courses are the 2-year Filmmaking HND and Art Direction HND programmes, (equivalent to the first 2 years of a degree). These courses are very practical, industry led, fully accredited and funding is available the student loan system to pay for your tuition fees. Each year Brighton Film School offers just 36 places to aspiring filmmakers who have recently achieved a Level 3 BTEC or completed their A levels or we are happy to look at previous experience or a creative portfolio in lieu of these qualifications. In addition, the school also delivers an industry focused Cinematography and Directing Diploma. These courses will give you the skills and confidence to enter the film industry either as a freelancer, independent filmmaker or other career paths.

Brighton Film School also runs several shorter courses aimed at beginners of those wanting to study film part-time. These include courses in filmmaking, screenwriting, art-direction, editing plus our special Summer School.

For younger filmmakers aged 15-17 we offer a Brighton Young Filmmakers after school club and our special Summer School Juniors. Both are extremely popular and early application is advised.
