Welcome to Bristol Film Academy

We are a new kind of film school, offering pre, post and production training at the very highest level, while also catering for a whole new crop of bloggers, Youtubers, musicians, journalists, students and teachers, for whom filmmaking has become totally accessible.

Our services range from filmmaking courses for beginners to specialist workshops for TV and film professionals. From the most basic video editing courses to our advanced Da Vinci Resolve and After Effects training, you'll be trained by an experienced professional, hand-picked for their talent for sharing knowledge and enabling creativity.

We're partnered with some of Bristol's finest and aim to build Bristol's reputation for excellence in animation, film and broadcast.  

We run training courses year-round here at the Film Academy HQ in the centre of town and we also take our most popular CPD courses for teachers on tour round the country. We run INSET training days at schools who've recognised the potential of filmmaking to enhance learning across the curriculum.

Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re a professional trying to keep up with an industry that’s changing faster than ever, we can help you achieve your goals and stay ahead.
