By enrolling in the Film School, students (or their parent/guardian) acknowledge that workshop activities can be physical and may involve the risk of accidents.

Student or their parents/guardians must advise Footprint Theatre in advance if the student has health problems and/or needs medication while attending a course. Tutors cannot be responsible for the administration of medication or ensuring suitable health precautions are in place to suit all participants.
