The London Film School has appointed Chris Auty as its new Director. He will take over from Neil Peplow and start his new role in November.
Auty has been a senior Head of Department at the National Film and Television School for the past ten years. He ran the school’s two-year MA producing program and was responsible for designing, validating, and running new MA courses.
Prior to taking up his role at the NFTS, Auty worked several roles within the industry. He was the founder and CEO of The Works plc, and before that, Managing Director of the Recorded Picture Company. He has worked with directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci, David Cronenberg, Michael Winterbottom, and Vincent Ward.

“I’m delighted to be taking on the leadership of this renowned film school in the heart of London. It happens to be the place where my own journey into film began – working with LFS alumnus Miguel Pereira on his first feature film,” Auty said.
“I greatly look forward to working with staff, students, and alumni to build the brightest possible future for this unique, world-class school for independent filmmakers.”
Auty replaces Peplow, who joined the London Film School as Director last year but is now leaving to take up what has been described as a “senior international role in the film industry.”
Greg Dyke, Chair of the London Film School added: “We are delighted to have attracted a candidate of Chris Auty’s caliber to take over from Neil as our Director. We are sorry to be losing Neil who only joined us last year but, out of the blue, he has been offered a major new role in the film industry at a package which unfortunately the School couldn’t match.”
