Be one of 12 budding young filmmakers from around the globe to take part in our intensive director training! If you're passionate about filmmaking and seeing your ideas come to life on the screen, will give you the foundations you need to make your start.

This two-week intensive is packed with practical filmmaking exercises. In addition to directing, you will try your hand at screenwriting, editing, acting and camera. You will work with peers on early exercises, but the final project will be your own! You will develop your ideas into a script, and work with industry professionals to translate it onto the screen in your own short film. 

At the end of the course each participant will receive a certificate of attendance, plus a USB of all of their scenes which may be used for showreel purposes or as part of an application portfolio.

Aimed at those with little or no practical filmmaking experience, this programme complements our Directing Summer School with Udayan Prasad for more experienced filmmakers.

Please note: Those who complete and submit an application by Sunday 24 March will receive priority for a place. We will continue to accept applications after the initial application deadline. Offers to subsequent candidates will be made subject to availability.
