Variety, on this global list: "Without the educators and programs in these pages, the voices of underserved youth will never be heard, and their visions will never change the world."

Gisli Snaer, Director of London Film School, said: 'We are thrilled that Variety has once again recognised LFS as one of the world’s leading film schools, with 2019 being another incredible year so far - our students continue winning awards on the film festival circuit, such as at the Berlinale, Cannes Cinéfondation, Clérmont Ferrand, Edinburgh, Iris Prize, London Critics’ Circle, Underwire and Uppsala.'
