FAMU International AMU = DAMU + FAMU + HAMU

FILM AND TV SCHOOL OF ACADEMY OF PERFORMING ARTS IN PRAGUE

Cinema and Digital Media (CDM)

Have you received a BA in cinema? or a BA in another field and you are able to prove your filmmaking talents are on a par with a BA cinema level? Here you are – a 3 year master’s degree program.

This natural evolution of FAMU International gained specific contours in the fall of 2008 when the first, carefully selected students enrolled for their three-year course..

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The three-year follow-up Master´s degree program is an intensive hands-on and theoretical preparation from the very beginning. Students work with a HDV, HDSLR and other digital formats while adopting a professional approach to the 16mm and 35mm film formats both on location and in the studio. At the same time, students take a number of compulsory courses based on their specialization, complemented with suitable elective courses, workshops, and a number of modules – short intensive courses taught by guest professional artists, theorists, and visiting professors, mostly on fridays or weekends.

The program is divided into two specializations: screenwriting and directing (cinematography used to be part of this program, but is now accredited separately – see the note bellow). Each discipline follows a specific curriculum.

During the admission procedure, we closely evaluate the applicant’s talents and abilities for the chosen specialization. Please pay careful attention to the requirements for the procedure, which are mandatory for all applicants and can be obtained here.
The intentionally low number of CDM students and the profile of the offered specialization subjects guarantee a personalized approach to every single student. At the beginning, every student is assigned a mentor to help them with their studies and with the creation of their theoretical and practical work.

CINEMATOGRAPHY
Concentration CDM-Cinematography is not going to be opened for 2013/14, as there is a new specialization Cinematography organized by Cinematography department and opening for that academic year. More information on Cinematography find here.
