  • Visitor Information

The London Film School is the oldest-established international school of film technique in the world. The school has contributed significantly to the development of film education in Britain and across the world and counts directors Michael Mann and Mike Leigh among its alumni. It's international in its outlook with over 60 per cent of the school's students originating from outside the UK. In late 2017, the school moves from Covent Garden to a purpose-built space on London City Island in East London with two cinemas, offices and a studio.
