Beacon Films CIC is a multi-award winning training and production organisation for filmmakers with learning disabilities, autism and additional needs. For young people (aged 6 – 19) with no experience of filmmaking, Beacon Films runs a BFI Film Academy from November – February each year, during which young people learn all about filmmaking by creating and starring in their own short film. Throughout the year, a variety of filmmaking projects is offered for young people and adults, as well as some volunteering opportunities on short film commissions. The organisation is also available to work with schools, community organisations and people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to develop exciting film, music and digital media projects.
