Training Courses


Regular one day courses and workshops are held at the BUFVC, promoting subjects related to the use of moving image in learning, teaching and research.

We also actively provide courses outside of London, and welcome approaches from universities or other organisations, who are interested in hosting such events.

We also provide a number of events throughout the year, regarding the use of moving image and sound in education. Further details can be found in our events section.
