Award QQI Level 5 Certificate in Film and Television Production
This one-year course in television and digital film will give you the opportunity to build a visual portfolio within the areas of television studio production, film production and photography.
Students will acquire practical skills in both Television and Film Production, including single camera production, non-linear film, and video editing. Through the study of Media Analysis, students gain knowledge of the interactive relationship between the producer, the advertiser, and the audience and how one impacts on the other. These skills will be evidenced in a portfolio of work including Film, Scriptwriting and Photography. This portfolio may be used for progression applications to degree programmes elsewhere. Every student makes one very short fiction film and one factual news piece and experiences every job in the television studio during the production process.

With supportive, friendly and knowledgeable teaching, BCFE gave me a great foundation in the skills I need to communicate my stories and begin my journey into the industry. Some highlights from the year were the end of year exhibition of our films and photography, taking part in script read-throughs and gaining invaluable teamwork experience. I was able to use my short film “Victim”, which I made as part of the course, to successfully secure a place in the Film and Television Production course in IADT where I’m continuing my education. For the same film I was also nominated for the Student award for Best Drama in The Royal Television Society Awards for the Republic of Ireland. Given that this was my very first film, I was extremely pleased with the nomination, and am thankful to BCFE for providing me with these opportunities
