London Film School was voted in Variety's Entertainment Education Report: The Best Films Schools for 2019

This highly respected digital and print publication, established for 113 years, focuses on business analysis and insights of the entertainment industries, included London Film School for the second time around.

Variety says the following about this 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, says: '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 as 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.' 

London Film School is located in the heart of London, where students create over 180 films annually with a student body of about 220 students.
