Get a taste of filmmaking

Are you at the crossroads of your studies, or are you deciding what your main focus should be? Are you creative, witty and bold?

Summer school in a nutshell

Our summer school concept is based on a hands-on preparation for the shooting and collective honing of the work from the idea to completion of an above-average outcome.

The priority is the room for individual creative growth, strengthening creative abilities and skills of the craft, and close student-tutor cooperation. Yes, the workshop is intense in terms of both time and energy, but the outcomes are worth it. And don’t worry – we have incorporated some leisure time for you in the schedule too.

When and for how long?

The five weeks will transform your view of filmmaking and perhaps make you decide to pursue your dream of a lifetime. Plus you will make new friends from around the world and fall in love with Prague.

We meet at the set on June 21, 2019

And we wrap up on July 26, 2019

Who should apply?

This program is best for you if you like fiction. You don't need to have any degree, nor any filmmaking experience. That's why we are here for. You just have to be a passionate team player, who is open to tell stories through moving pictures.
