    So at the outset, I just want to state that I'm a complete outsider to the World of Showbiz! Being a Certified Management Accountant and Bachelors in Commerce, I have not had any professional training nor any insight into the educational aspect of filmmaking. However, what I do possess is an undying desire to tell stories and bring stories around the world to life and thereby create a lasting impact on people and their lives. Anyhoo, this year ( at the age of 27) I took the call of calling it quits from the Corporate Industry and purse my passion of direction and filmmaking. However, my knowledge in the sphere of film schools and film education is limited. It is now, that I am researching more about it. So that brings me to my question; how credible is London Film School? What is the possibility of a complete external person ( such as yours truly) to get into such film schools? How is the alumni network of LFS? Any and every answer is welcome. Whatever little input would give me a great impetus! Thanks a ton people!

    Hi Siddarth,

    I am from the UK but now attend UCLA. I spent a long time deciding whether I should attend film school in the UK and I interviewed with LFS (they accepted me).

    There are really only two 'film' schools in the UK (ie. solely dedicated to film & not just a film degree at a general academic university) & those schools are the London Film School and the National Film and Television School.

    NFTS is much better than LFS, in truth, but they accept a limited number of students so if you are desperate to attend film school then you have a higher chance of acceptance, statistically speaking, with LFS.

    I was looking at LFS for Screenwriting and was disappointed to see that the majority of their alumni went on to become film critics, rather than working screenwriters. However, this was several years ago and things may have changed. I hear their Directing programme is better than what they provided for screenwriters.

    So, essentially, you have a good chance at getting into LFS but I would suggest looking seriously at NFTS, as they have much better facilities and are regarded very highly in the industry.
