Central Film School

A Practical Education in Filmmaking

Central Film School offers students a practical education in fictional narrative and documentary filmmaking. We aim to give independent voices the skills and knowledge needed to tell their stories through film. We train aspiring filmmakers, actors and screenwriters to work in the industry as soon as they graduate, both in the UK and internationally.
