LDN Filmmakers

London is one of the most iconic film destinations in the world, yet a lack of diversity often means it’s the same stories that get told on the big screen.

LDN Filmmakers is a free fast-track film course designed to shake up the industry and help young Londoners realise their creative potential – regardless of their background.

About the project

Created by Mayor of London in partnership with DCM, LDN Filmmakers gives young people a platform to share their narratives and perspectives. Through writing, directing and editing, participants told their stories of life in London – stories that tend to be misunderstood by mainstream media.

You can watch some of the films, or go behind the scenes to hear how the programme has helped our filmmakers build serious self belief and valuable skills for their future.

Applications for LDN Filmmakers are now closed, but you can check out similar opportunities here: www.london.gov.uk/london-needs-you
