The deadline for MA Filmmaking and MA Screenwriting September programmes are rapidly coming, and we want to make sure that every student can attend, no matter their financial situation. At LFS, you'll have access to an internationally renowned film industry network in the heart of London, taught craft excellence, and the ability to put sought-after credits to your name. Scholarships and bursaries are available to UK and EU/EEA students, highlighted below and Federal Funding is available to American students.
