London is a global hub for the film industry, making it an ideal place to pursue your filmmaking dreams. Central Film School is located in between Brixton and Clapham, SW London, giving you access to renowned film studios, production companies, and a vibrant creative community.
From West End theatres and pop-up theatre companies, over 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.
Our diverse and creative population is the backbone of what makes London the perfect place to start your career.
After undertaking an extensive search for our ‘forever home’, Central Film School moved to its current campus in 2022. Occupying a former 19th-century music hall nestled between Brixton and Clapham North, our premises offers the CFS academic community everything a visual storyteller could need. Famous for its vibrant social scene and cultural diversity, Clapham has also been the home to some of the screen industry’s biggest stars such as Margot Robbie, Jason Statham, Christopher Wood and J.K Rowling.
