Screen and Film School Birmingham is the first film industry-specific school in Birmingham.

This institution is part of the Screen and Film Schools system along with the campuses in Brighton and Manchester and is under the patronage of the BIMM University. The area in Birmingham is a good place to get an education in the field of film and television due to the current popularity of the city: now it stars the popular series "Peaky Blinders", and a few years ago the shooting of the films "Mission Impossible-7", "The First Player to Get Ready", "Kingsman: The Golden Ring" ended. Film life in Birmingham gives students the opportunity to visit the film sets, communicate with experienced specialists in this field and, possibly, meet famous actors and legends of cinema.

The institution's director, Hannah Stevenson, is a producer with extensive experience in the industry, with over 20 years of serving on Granada TV live, filming full- and short films. Her work has earned international recognition and several prestigious awards.

Accommodation, meals, prices

Screen and Film School Birmingham does not have residential buildings, so students need to find accommodation in the city on their own. The institution provides assistance in finding a suitable option and landlord, signing a contract and even financing accommodation with scholarships.

Since Birmingham has several dozen large universities and colleges, the demand for rental housing is high. First of all, students occupy common student houses and places in private dormitories.

It will be more convenient for students of the school to live in the following areas:

  • Birmingham city centre,
  • Selli Oak,
  • Moseley and Kingshit,

  • Unite Student: 13 dormitories with rooms equipped with bathrooms and kitchens at a price of £ 99 per week,
  • My Student Halls: 23 houses with studios ranging from £185 to £220 per week,
  • CRM: en suite rooms from 99£ per week.

A wide range of living spaces makes it possible to find accommodation for students with any budget. Thanks to the excellent transport system of the city, students will be able to get to school from almost any district.

Students of the school have many opportunities for creative and personal development. Master classes with leading experts of the film industry are regularly held on campus: for example, in 2021, directors and cameramen Mark Mylod, Scott Mann and Richard Stewart visited the institution.

Birmingham is one of the world's centres of film industry and diverse creativity in recent years. Every year it hosts more than 50 festivals, including large-scale Flat Pack, Fierce Art Festival and others.

The city is one of the greenest areas in the UK: 600 parks and open spaces on an area of more than 8,000 acres. Martino Gardens with winding paths, forests and orchards, historic houses and winterbourne gardens – the nature surrounding Birmingham will not leave students indifferent.

Nightlife in the city is also diverse: evenings in the style of retro, soul and films of the 1940s in The Electric Cinema, stand-ups, concerts of popular musicians and DJs. By the way, Birmingham is a place that has nurtured such music figures as Adele, Metallica, The Killers, and local concert halls often host artists Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, AHA, The Pet Shop Boys and others.
