METFILM School, with campuses at Ealing Studios and in Berlin, has appointed David Howell as its new CEO.

He is the former commercial director for The Institute of Contemporary Music and has almost 20 years’ experience in higher education.

He said: “Met Film School has grown rapidly over the last 15 years, with nearly 1,000 students across its two campuses, but I think it’s just warming-up.

“The school already has an international reputation which we could build on.”
