NFTS Short Courses

Short Courses

These 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. Practioners 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. These course are across all NFTS UK Locations as well as some offered exclusively online.

To see what short courses are coming up across our UK locations in January, you can download this leaflet (pdf).
