Beacon Hill Arts BFI Film Academy 2015-16 is open for applications.
Now in its fourth year, the Beacon Hill Arts BFI Film Academy is for talented young people (aged 16-19) with learning disabilities, autism and additional needs. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn all about film-making and to create a fun short film. Films made through the Academy have been screened at festivals all around the world.
I felt like I'd made loads of new friends, had loads of fun and had worked independently as part of the epic team of all time!
