Young Film Academy

YFA logo 2011For young people who love films, whether it’s creating them or acting in them, YFA’s all-inclusive Summer Camp is a dream come true: a chance to eat, sleep and breathe movies! The camp is held at St Catherine’s Bramley, one of the UK’s leading boarding schools, and includes all board, meals, tuition, excursions, equipment and activities. Students on YFA Summer Camp will divide into 2 crews: FILMMAKING CREW (for aspiring filmmakers) & ACTING CREW (for aspiring actors). Students (ages 10-17) choose which Crew they wish to join for the duration of their camp.

Each Crew will develop specialised skills in their own disciplines though practical exercises, workshops and masterclasses with film industry professionals. And because we passionately believe that the best way to learn to is get out there and DO it, the Filmmaking and Acting Crews will then combine in teams to work together for the production of the movies.

Each week of YFA Summer Camp culminates in a Premiere Screening of all the completed movies for friends and family in the onsite cinema. There’ll be a packed house, behind-the- scenes special features telling the real story of how that movie got made, and we’re guessing some blooper-reels too…

And when students aren’t on set, there’ll be oodles of great fun indoor and outdoor activities on offer for them to enjoy, including swimming, football, tennis, table tennis, basketball, dance, drama, film screenings, movie quizzes, talent show, excursions, competitions, games and more!

“My sons couldn’t have had a happier time with Young Film Academy and now seem to know more about filmmaking than I do. This is quite awkward”

– Richard Curtis (‘Four Weddings’, ‘Notting Hill’, ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’)
