'I have had a great experience at Central Film School, making amazing contacts and learning a vast amount from the tutors who are all industry professionals. I am currently working as a gaffer and Steadicam operator on a British comedy feature film, the 2nd feature I have worked on since starting film school - shooting boat chases on the Thames and a fight scene on an aeroplane!'

'I left Australia for the Central Film School BA Screenwriting course as I believed CFS would fan my fiery passion for screenwriting. I have not been disappointed! The quality of the tutors – a variety of professionals, all working within the industry – is a constant source of inspiration as they nurture my peers and me by paying attention to us as individuals. The different points of view and personalities of the tutors combines with a rich and varied curriculum that challenges, invigorates and excites. When I graduate CFS I will leave knowing that I have gained a solid and long-lasting platform on which to continue building my understanding of screenwriting and filmmaking. Thank you, Central Film School!'

'After finishing the course I went straight to work and I am currently working on my second feature. Joining Central was one of the best decisions I ever made as I got to spend so much time on Film sets during my course!'

'I spent a year at the School and it was well worth it. The tutors are great, it's so useful to have industry professionals teaching you what they have spent 20-30 years in some cases perfecting. We as a class have come out of the course with some great films, a good showreel and still a massive passion for filmmaking'
— Adam Smith, Industry Filmmaking Diploma Graduate, 2013
'I moved here from spending one year and a half at Columbia College Chicago, one of the top rated film schools by The Hollywood Reporter, and find myself incredibly impressed by Central Film School's facilities, faculties and student base. The student body is filtered in admissions to bring you the most capable and artistic students from all over the world (about 70% international) to work by your side day-in and day-out. The faculty is built up of both full-time teachers, who are highly experienced in their field, and full-time professionals in the film industry. We were lectured by Ackland Snow, the set designer of Batman (1989) and the creator of cinema's Batmobile, Tony chance, (IMDB him!), and many more amazing professionals in the first month of being here! A great school to start from.'
— Tariq Keblaoui, BA(Hons) Practical Filmmaking, 2014-2016
'I took the intensive course for one month and it was great. We did many different things throughout the weeks and learnt a lot about filmmaking. It is definitely a good way to start something in the film industry: in only two weeks we managed to produce, shoot, and edit a short film! I strongly recommend to have made some things before (videos, short films...)but if you're new at this field you will also have a wonderful time here.'
— Javi Marrero, One Month Intensive Practical Filmmaking course
'After finishing my time at Central Film school, I can state that this was an incredible experience. Building a great relationship with other students and tutors, people who I know I will work with in the future, and educational wise I learnt more then I expected to. And I never thought I would say this but I don't want to leave this school, I consider Central a family.'
— Joshua Poulsen, Industry Filmmaking Diploma, 2013
'I did the one year Industry Filmmaking Diploma. You get to produce, direct and write. You get to be DOP, work in set design, learn about sound, how to edit, be a 1st AD, Gaffer and Script Supervisor. While working with a 16mm Camera you also get to learn how to Clapper load, focus pull and be a Camera Assistant. And you get to work on a lot of films to get on hand experience. Central Film School is a great choice for ambitious and aspiring filmmakers.'
