NFTS Short Courses

NFTS Short Courses

NFTS Short Courses deliver all short courses for the National Film and Television School, running courses at Beaconsfield, London or online.

Our industry-renowned courses are aimed at professionals in film and television as a means of furthering their careers.

From a two-day course in self-shooting, to one day catching up with Movie Magic software in budgeting or scheduling, our courses have gained a huge reputation within the industry. Practitioners can choose to spend a week discovering how to shoot a documentary, three days learning how to edit on Avid, or less than a week understanding how to cut film to music.
