LFS benefits from a diverse filmmaking community with an international reputation. The School has always been proud of its students and wants to play a more significant part in the UK with support from industry and government. I look forward to building on this as LFS develops, working with staff and students to achieve further success regionally, nationally and internationally.'
Greg Dyke, Chair of London Film School's Board of Governors, added: “I am delighted that Gisli has taken on the role of Director of the London Film School.
