RADA alumni Michael Sheen said of The Screen @ RADA: "For the students to have film work fully integrated into their training seems essential. Having The Screen @ RADA will be of immense value to that end. To be able to have viewings of films as a teaching resource as well as a way of showcasing work by students opens up a lot of very exciting possibilities for the future."

The partnership will start with The Screen’s fall season and the program will include exclusive Q&A film screenings with directors, producers, writers, actors and technical theatre craft specialists including RADA alumni and recent graduates.

A list of participants and events will be announced in August, the partners said.
