The Film Academy Edinburgh is a filmmaking academy aimed at young people between the ages of 9 and 18. The Film Academy workshops are delivered in two formats: our well established after school Weekly Academy (two separate Academies to choose from, running on a Wednesday or on a Friday following term times) and a Summer School programme. All films are screened at the end of the Academy year, with a number going on to be entered into youth film festivals worldwide.

If you had told me a few weeks ago that Film Academy would be as good virtually as it is face to face I would have laughed, and how wrong would I have been. The whole process from start to finish is so professional, motivational and most important fun for the students.
A massive well done to everyone, who worked so hard to deliver the showcase and live script readings yesterday. It was brilliant, and a credit to you all…. teachers and students alike.
The Film Academy has achieved remarkable things over these lock down months (and, indeed far far back!). Our children mental health benefited so positively thanks to your remarkable input. Hats off to all of you, and thank you.
A sincere thank-you for all your efforts in pulling together the Virtual Film Academy. What a challenge it must have been for you and your team but you should feel very proud of the results you have delivered. The positive impact of giving our young people a purpose and something to look forward to each week cannot be underestimated. What a fantastic achievement!
As predicted and as always, Regan enjoyed every part of the course. Thank you to Graham and the team for all their hard work teaching everyone all about Film making. I know Regan has learned a lot this week and happy to have made new friends.
My son has just completed the film Academy week and had a great time. The films they made from start to finish were fantastic and he has learnt new skills and made new friends. Thanks to Graham and all the great team.
My daughter Rachael attended the Film Academy Summer School this week – and loved it! She learnt new skills, made new friends and enjoyed acting in front of the camera and working behind the scenes too. Would highly recommend it!
Thanks so much to the team. Amazing to find a holiday club our children looked forward to each day. Well done!
