Frequently Asked Questions


ARE THERE MANY APPLICANTS?

Yes, we have many applicants at Stockholm Film School, but your chances are as great as any other’s!

HOW MANY ARE ACCEPTED?

It varies. Usually between 20-25 students. We look at the composition of a new class and make an evaluation considering what best suits the group, the future film teams and the individual student.

WHAT DO YOU BECOME WHEN YOU GRADUATE?

After two years at our school you have professional training in practical filmmaking. What you become is up to you, but we have given you the tools and the experience that enable you to either work as an assistant within several capacities in the film industry, or to apply with good chances to a higher education, such as Stockholm University of Fine Arts (Stockholms Dramatiska Högskola).

CAN I STUDY JUST ONE YEAR?

The course is planned and structured around the two years. After completing the course you graduate. Students who choose to only attend one year receive a diploma.

If you already have work experience from the film business, or have attended another similar education, or in any other way have obtained the necessary pre-qualifications which equal year 1, you may apply directly to year 2.

WHY DOES IT COST MONEY?

All tuition fees go straight into the operation of the school, and pay for the school’s expenses.

Stockholm Film School is run by a non-profit association and its members. No money can be yielded as profit, everything goes straight to the running of the school. As a result the members are in full control of shaping the education. As a student you have the possibility of becoming a member and thus influence your own education.

CAN I APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID FOR THE STUDIES?

Yes, the education is qualified for CSN (Swedish student aid), which means you can apply for student grants and loans. You can also apply for a supplementary loan from CSN to pay the course fee. Read more about the grant and loan.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU?

Stockholm Film School is a small school which is 100% dedicated and committed to film education and the students who make up the school. We have no other operations, and answer only to the members of our association. You as a student can be one of them!
