Brighton Film School

Description

The New City of Brighton and Hove is a very special place for learning film making as this craft was pioneered here over 100 years ago. Original 35mm cameras can be seen in the Hove Museum and these were used back in 1896 to make films locally at an early studio - The Film Factory - in St Ann's Well Gardens in Hove. These films were then shown at one of the first "Kinemas" as they were called. The former "Pandora's Gallery" is now the Melrose Restaurant opposite the West Pier and the owner, Tony, will proudly show you the plaque placed outside by The British Film Institute stating that film was first shown to the public here on 25th March 1896. The Brighton Film School works very closely with the Education Committee of The Moving Image Society (The British Kinematograph, Sound and Television Society), of which the Course Lecturer, Franz von Habsburg FBKS, is a fellow, and your fees include your first year's student membership of this, the film industry's technical guild. We are also working closely with the Directors' Guild of Great Britain and the Guild of British Camera Technicians so that you will have the very best of industry contacts. We are delighted to hold these Directors' Courses in Motion Picture Production, and you are cordially invited to apply for a place here in Brighton.RecognitionThe Brighton Film School is a member of the National Association for Higher Education in the Moving Image (NAHEMI), a national body representing film schools in the UK and Eire.
