Global Cultural Capital



London is an exciting place where you will find old and new, establishment to independent, nestled alongside each other innovating, growing, collaborating and learning from one another.

From West End theatres and pop-up theatre companies, Brixton Academy music venue and our 250 music festivals, Tate art galleries and the art fairs of East London, Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square and the Rooftop Film Club that runs outdoors throughout summer, London’s past and present are the ideal place to immerse yourself in culture whilst you create your future.

The capital is home to over 8 million people, speaking 300 languages from more than 270 countries. More than a third of people living in London were born outside of the UK. Our diverse and creative population is the backbone of what makes London the perfect place to start your career.


Central Film School & the Creative East-End

Central Film School is based in Spitalfields, just a stone’s throw (or 5 minute walk) from Shoreditch, London’s creative hub. Located off Brick Lane, we are part of a vibrant, creative and entrepreneurial community that includes art fairs, fashion and vintage markets, food festivals, bars, clubs and restaurants, and some of the best street art London has to offer.

The area has a rich history dating back to 1669 with the opening of the Truman Brewery and an exciting future with artists, students, and businesses filling the area with creativity and opportunity. Spitalfields is an ideal location to draw inspiration for your projects whilst studying at Central Film School.


The school itself is a few minutes walk from four underground stations linking it directly with the centre of London. You can be in Oxford Circus in 20 minutes.
