Budding film directors can get some first hand experience thanks to a collaboration between Paradigm Arts and the University of Lincoln’s School of Film and Media.

The long-standing 
partnership has again been awarded funding to run the regional BFI Film Academy, starting on October 10.

This professional filmmaking programme for 16 to 19 year olds will run on the university campus on alternate Saturdays until February 2016.

“This is the fourth year that the collaboration has run the prestigious programme, as one of the few partnerships to have participated from the pilot phase of the initiative launched in 2012,” said Rob Pitman, director of Paradigm Arts.

“This course offers the chance to be part of our 
future film industry.”

Applications need to be in by September 25. Download a form from or, for more information, call Rob on 07885 384667.
