IAFT-Hong Kong is located in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong Island. With a rich filmmaking history, a huge variety of shooting locations, (from urban jungle to beautiful beaches, and hidden waterfalls) and China as the largest film market outside of the US, it has never been more relevant to study film in Hong Kong.
IAFT Hong Kong is now a registered center for conducting the Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Creative Media Production (Moving Image) (QCF). We are also registered with the Hong Kong Government’s Non-Local Courses Registry – Registration Number 252448.
Applicants interested in enrolling in this program may contact our Admissions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

HANDS-ON LEARNING: At IAFT we believe that the best way to learn film production is by actually getting out there and doing it! Unlike university film schools, IAFT focuses your studies on the skills that matter. IAFT teaches through hands-on instruction where we let you experience the intricacies of film production first hand. Getting out there and doing is a great way to build experience and our expert film production mentors will help you do just that.
SMALLER CLASS SIZES: Because we are a boutique film school, students at IAFT benefit from some of the smallest class sizes of any film school out there. This means you receive more training in each subject, more access to equipment, and the benefit of more one-on-one attention from our mentors. You can build your filmmaking skills faster with a small class size and more attention.
FOCUS ON MENTORSHIP: At IAFT, our mentors are all veterans of the film industry. IAFT does not hire career professors. We want you to be trained by people that know what the real-world, working industry is like. Our mentors work directly with you, sharing their experience, and developing creative relationships that will last throughout your career.
AFFORDABLE PRICE: IAFT prides itself in offering Diploma and Certificate programs at a price you can afford. And since entertainment is not a degree driven industry, why go to a four-year university and spend tens of thousands of dollars? When you know that you want a career in the entertainment industry, why waste your time with required courses that you have no interest in? IAFT knows why you are here, and we won’t burden you with paying for classes that aren’t of use to you when you graduate.
AN ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT: IAFT programs are based on helping you get out there and get your career going. We want you to succeed in our classrooms, but more importantly, we want you to succeed after you graduate.
THE IAFT GLOBAL EDGE: We aren’t just the Academy of Film and Television; we are the International Academy of Film and Television. When you study with us, you can divide your study at multiple campuses. Take the first two terms in LA, then head to here for your final two terms. Start your diploma program here in Hong Kong, then move to Antwerp to finish. Or, take one term at four different campuses. There are lots of possibilities! With our global network of graduates, we are touching the entertainment industry world-wide.
