Get seduced by film storytelling

Are you at a crossroads in your studies, or planning a life changing twist? Are you creative, witty and bold? Are you a passionate filmgoer and keen on the filmmaking process?

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for open-minded talented young people who are open to the challenges presented by the various stages of the filmmaking process. The challenge is also present in collaborative work, the ability to deliver ideas and participate in developing input from one’s colleagues.

What might you be looking for?

Do you wish to gain a brief yet comprehensive experience in the fields of directing, cinematography, sound design and editing, and experience an A-class film festival with the accreditation of a film pro? Our summer course may also serve as your summer university activity; the content of the studies is defined in ECTS credits and students obtain a Transcript of Records upon graduation.
