LFS Outreach Projects

LFS Outreach projects aim to nurture talent, broaden horizons and inspire young people to have a life-long engagement and appreciation of film.
We work with schools, colleges and community groups as well as a wide range of industry organisations.
Our activities provide learning opportunities for young people from all backgrounds, helping them to identify a pathway to participate in our industry be that as an audience member or as part of the screen industries' workforce.
Projects are fully bespoke and can be delivered in class or online - or in a blended capacity.
Here is an example of a virtual classroom in action:

LFS Virtual Film Club is a weekly programme of online film club sessions for children and young people in schools across the country, led by alumni of the London Film School. Through discussions, film assignments and analysis of the work, pupils develop an awareness of the building blocks of film including light, framing, music and sound.


LFS alumni work alongside UK teachers to deliver 'Cinéma – Cent ans de Jeunesse' an international filmmaking programme run by the Cinémathèque Française, Paris in collaboration with the BFI. This unique programme gives young people (aged 7 to 18) a chance to experience cinema, by discovering cinematic heritage and taking part in filmmaking exercises. More information can be found here.
The following films have been made by children as part of the programme: Out of Bounds & Making Sense


Our online programme offers free talks and bursaries for short courses ensuring access to quality filmmaking training irrespective of background or income. Support may be granted on a bespoke, case-by-case basis to young people and underrepresented groups in the film and TV industries.  We welcome recommendations through our outreach partners.
