Screen and Film School Birmingham Facilities
Welcome to Rea Studios, a shared home for Screen and Film School Birmingham and Performers College Birmingham, helping our students kickstart their career in film.
As the very first specialist film school in Birmingham, Rea Studios, which is located on Floodgate Street in the heart of Digbeth, provides our students with the professional standard facilities to both work and study in, whilst also providing them with the opportunity to collaborate with students from Performers College for their productions.
For the first time in the city, a specialist film school is offering students the opportunity to learn all about the industry, from the industry.
Rea Studios houses high specification edit suites with industry standard software such as Avid, Adobe Suite, DaVinci Resolve studio and Final Cut X, two Mac rooms, a film studio, a screening room and an open plan communal reception area – providing everything our students will ever need to creatively flourish. Students will be fully immersed in the industry from the very first day of their undergraduate degree course.
Directly opposite the striking BIMM music institute, Rea Studios joins a cluster of other colleges, providing an emerging creative community that will bolster an already existing creative hub in the city.
Film students have the chance to follow in the prestigious footsteps of director Steven Spielberg, who chose Digbeth as a location for his feature film Ready Player One and they will also benefit from being at the heart of Birmingham’s creative sector. The Custard Factory houses a multitude of small independent artistic businesses. With television production companies Optomen and North One also being based in the area, and the planned investment of Mercian Studios, we are positioned to give our students the very best access to the local industry.
