BFI Film Academy offers opportunities for 16-25 year olds, anywhere in the UK, to get to know more about film and how to forge a career in the screen industries. 

The Young Talent Coordinator at Film Hub Midlands who manages and oversees the programme, works closely with cultural arts organisations, venues and young people across the Midlands to provide a wide range of exciting activities in the region.



I’m aged between 16-25, where can I find out more about the Midlands BFI Film Academy is and what’s on offer?

You can find details via our Opportunities page for Film Hub Midlands BFI Film Academy activities and programme.


Where can I find resources?
