Film Academy South West Scene

BFI Film Academy SCENE events are for emerging film talent aged 16-25. SCENE provides an opportunity for young filmmakers to promote their films and gives you a chance to watch some amazing new shorts, ask questions and learn from your filmmaking peers.

Our SCENE programme featuring shorts made by South West based filmmakers ages 16-25 will be touring regionally over the next few months.


Our SCENE programme is jam packed with brilliant short films that celebrate local filmmakers aged 16 – 25.  The films selected include live action, documentary and animation films. 

The hour-long showcase will be toured at film festivals and venues across the region throughout 2022, with a chance to meet some of the filmmakers involved.

Check out upcoming screenings below and stay tuned for more info about future screenings.
