The Metropolitan Film School seeks to inspire, develop and support individuals who want to become filmmakers.


Our teaching philosophy and standards are based on the following beliefs:

A good film requires a good story and all aspiring filmmakers must first understand the principles of story-telling for the screen.
The best way to learn how to make films is to practice making films in a supported environment, and to appreciate that mistakes are as important in the learning process as moments of inspiration.
Filmmaking instructors should be active practitioners who are as passionate about teaching as they are about film.
Our commitment to our students should not end with the last course. The school continues to support its filmmaking community by providing ongoing access to other filmmakers, screenings, production services, festival & funding news & other relevant events.

Our partners include the National Film and Television School with whom we have developed the courses From Story to Screen in Eight Weeks and Complete Script Development: Shorts. Furthermore one of our founders is the Picturehouse cinema group which is committed to the digital distribution of any good short films made by our students, providing the opportunity for instant recognition.
