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:

VIRTUAL FILM CLUB

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 LIVE

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.

FILM EDUCATION COLLABORATIONS

LE CINEMA, CENT ANS DE JEUNESSE (WITH BFI)

LFS filmmakers work alongside UK teachers to deliver 'Le Cinéma – Cent Ans de Jeunesse' an international filmmaking programme run in collaboration with the British Film Institute. 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.   

Young people in schools around the world make films that respond to an aspect of film language which changes every year.  The programme is tightly structured into exploratory exercises and the production of a final film.  A comprehensive ‘viewing curriculum’ of clips taken from the history of cinema is offered alongside practical workshops.  

Filmmaking groups in education settings in the UK are welcome to join the project by emailing: mark.reid@bfi.org.uk
