The REcreative Film School is a free, radical film course that takes place annually at the South London Gallery.

Since 2015 the school has worked with close to 100 young people from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the film industry. It focuses on non-conventional forms of filmmaking and storytelling, and aims to develop young people’s individual creative practices through workshops, screenings and talks by invited guests. The school is committed to influencing long-term change in the film and art worlds by supporting marginalised voices. 

REcreative Film School is led by Director, Saeed Taji Farouky and Paul Crook, Young People’s Programme Manager, South London Gallery. The film school takes place at the South London Gallery every November and December across five Saturday sessions. 


Applications for the SLG Film school 2020 (formerly REcreative Film School) are now closed.

The SLG Film School 2020 was supported by the Edwin Fox Foundation

REcreative is part of the SLG’s Young People’s Programme, which is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Oscar Humphries and Sophie Oakley and the SLG Council
