CFI Academy

Our new film academy aims at training young people from 11 – 25 years of age. Programs under the academy will be Meet Your Filmmaker & Saturday Film Club. 

Meet Your Filmmaker (MYF)

The Meet Your Filmmaker program gives training, support & mentoring to a cohort of young filmmakers between 16-25 years of age. This program is aimed at those who are showing a real talent for filmmaking. The aim of this program is to give in-depth training to a group of young filmmakers and partner them up with community projects. 


These projects will give opportunity for young filmmakers to up-skill, get hands on experience and develop further. Young people on this program get paid for working on these projects so we see this program as a pathway for young people to progress into the film industry. 


First year cohort launches on the 13th of November 2023. If you’d like to be considered for this program please do apply with your CV, showreel (not a requirement) & a cover letter to – training@crawleyfilm.org
