5 WHYs at FAMU

1) Intensive Program

Studying at FAMU is a full-time job. You will be exposed to filmmaking every single day, in return you can expect to become a someone who really understands filmmaking. Learn more about the intensity.

2) Filmmaking is a team effort.

The community of students at FAMU is a tight one - almost like an extended family, where you all know each other by name. There is no hiding, thanks to the fact that we have small classes and during the year, students help each other out on their shoots.

3) There is a mentor per 5 students.

Our mentor classes are created so that the mentor can devote time to each one of you individually. We have a maximum of 5 students per mentor, which leads to intensive work and individual relationships.

4) You will get a production budget.

Production costs of practical exercises are covered in the tuition fee. Moreover, part of your tuition will be used as your production budget for external costs, such as location fees, actors, props etc.

5) Prague is your scenery.

Prague is an amazing city - multicultural, affordable, green, beautiful, historical and still small in comparison to other capital cities in Europe, moreover with great city transport. What is not to love around here?
