London is the third busiest film production in the world, with over thirty crews shooting on its streets every day. The Met Film School is based in the world-famous Ealing Studios, a short tube journey from central London and its many cinemas, theatres and sights. There are plenty of informal media groups and societies in London that you can join and we hold regular masterclasses and events at the school to supplement your learning.
Among the best resources for students are:
The British Film Institute, on London's South Bank, which shows films of every genre and in every language you can imagine and hosts the London Film Festival in October as well as a host of other events. Film London offers funding for filmmakers based in the UK as well as comprehensive information about the British film industry.
It's also worth becoming a member of Shooting People, the UK's largest online film community. And Met Film School students get a 50% discount off the membership fee!
