About National Film and Television School

The National Film and Television School is one of the best and most respected film, television and new media schools in the world.

Following the School’s success at the CILECT Awards (the film school equivalent of the Oscars) the Observer newspaper described the NFTS “as the best film school in the world”.

The National Film School (as it was first named) opened in 1971, the culmination of a major effort by the industry and government to create an institution to educate and train talent for the British film industry.

The NFTS is a multi-BAFTA and Oscar winning school. The School delivers more specialist behind-the-camera production courses (from screenwriting through to cinematography, animation and composing) than any other film school in the world.

Alumni include Nick Park, Roger Deakins, Nick Broomfield, Terence Davies and Lynne Ramsay.
