    I am currently doing research on multiple film schools. It is difficult to decide which one is the right fit for me. I live in United Kingdom so most of my research is conducted on Film Schools from UK and Europe. I started reading reviews from graduates about London Film School and they were mixed opinions. Their website ( https://lfs.org.uk ) looks really good and their courses look promising. Has any of you attended London Film School? Is London Film School worth the time and money?

    I was asking the same thing before going to Film School here, in Germany. It is worth it here, it is worth it there too! But don't make the mistake to believe that all you need to do is to go to that school, you still need to do plenty activities and extracurricular work to make it worth for you.

    My high school buddy is currently a student at London Film School. I asked him this question. He said that in his opinion, Film School is worth it only if you will spend each hour and day learning about filmmaking, doing short films and attend classes. Film School is not worth it if you only want a piece of paper to include in your Resume. That paper will not help you at all if you don't use this (expensive) opportunity to develop skills.

    My buddy also told me that from what he learned, film school is not mandatory to work in this industry. However, experience and skills are.

    Jeffery's buddy is right. Was preparing to write the same thing.

    Listen buddy, the choice of a film school depends on you and your assessment of its various opportunities. You can also look at the reviews of people who studied there, but don't rely too much on them.
