Filmmaking Resources

We’ve long felt that there are bits and bobs of information scattered across the internet, included across BFI NETWORK’s own Film Hub websites that get a bit buried or forgotten. While we cannot claim that is a fully comprehensive directory of all the links you will ever need to either make a film, or kickstart a career in film, the hope is that we’ve created a one-stop-shop of some of the most useful guides, toolkits, masterclasses, podcasts and websites that either we’ve had a hand in making, or that we can wholeheartedly recommend.
