Welcome to The Film Academy Edinburgh

About Us

The Film Academy Edinburgh runs summer camps as well as a weekly after-school activity from August to June every year. Open to girls and boys age 9 to 18, students explore their creativity and build their confidence through hands on workshops learning the A to Z of making movies with big screen presentations of their own work.

The Film Academy Edinburgh is a filmmaking school aimed at boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 18.

The Film Academy workshops are delivered in two formats: Weekly term time after-school classes, and School Holiday Programmes.

All films made are screened at the end of each term, with a number going on to be entered into youth film festivals worldwide.
