Phoebe Waller-Bridge with NFTS students



We regularly host a star-studded array of acclaimed names from across the film, television and games industries for the benefit of our students.

These exclusive and intimate interactions provide invaluable advice for students and give you the opportunity to ask your own burning questions to some of the most significant figures in the entertainment world

Masterclasses are often accompanied by screenings of hotly anticipated films and television programmes, sometimes as previews prior to their official release.

We are constantly striving to ensure our students hear from a diverse range of voices and we take the importance of representation and gender equality very seriously. Welcomed through the doors of the National Film and Television School and into the homes of our students (via a laptop screen!) are an impressive list of behind the camera talent including David Fincher, Martin McDonagh, Steve McQueen, Sally Wainwright, Louis Theroux, Sandy Powell, Christopher McQuarrie, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Reggie Yates, Charlotte Regan, Roger Deakins, and Asif Kapadia to name but a few. 

Although most of our Masterclasses are an exclusive benefit that comes with being a student at the NFTS, we have made a host of resources available for all to enjoy at any time…Take a look below and keep an eye on our socials for new opportunities and Masterclass content!
