Our residential includes a pre-residential weekend from Saturday 20th – Sunday 21st January 2018 and a production week from 11th-7th February 2018. You must be available to attend all of these dates to be eligible for the course
ACCOMMODATION: Debden House, Essex IG10 2NZ. All meals will be provided here, at no additional cost. You will be sharing rooms with other participants
FEES: We welcome applications from talented young filmmakers from all backgrounds. The Course Fee ranges from £0 to £210 which includes your accommodation and food.
Due to generous support from the Department for Education in England, Creative Scotland, Lottery funding and Northern Ireland Screen we are able to heavily subsidise the cost of fees. Depending on your financial circumstances we will subsidise some of the Course Fee or all of it.
Please don’t let the cost of the residential courses deter you from applying. If a young person is offered a place on the Film Academy and can’t afford the Course Fee or other associated costs, our bursary scheme can help. If you have the talent we will make sure you can attend.
