Our credits tell the story.

Some of our departments hold Open Days throughout the year for people planning to apply to the School. They are an opportunity to see our facilities and talk to some of our tutors and students about the course.

If you have already decided which course you would like to study, you will find open days below tailored specifically for your choice. You will meet our Director, Nik Powell; be given a tour of the School; have the opportunity to attend course-specific talks; and see some of our students' work. It will give you a great insight into life at the School and what professional, practical training we can offer you as a filmmaker.

If you would like to come to an open day, please email openday@nfts.co.uk, giving the date of the open day and the department you’d like to visit, along with your name, address and contact details.

Please note that you are making a booking for one place only and that there is an age restriction on all Open Days of 18+ (except the General Open Day, which accepts visitors under 18).  Our Open Days follow a timetable that includes tours, talks and screenings. Please be sure to arrive at the NFTS at least 15 minutes before the start time specified below.

Only open days with spaces available to book are listed below. If you are booked onto an Open Day that is not listed, it is because that Open Day is now full. The event will still take place as listed in your confirmation email.
