Stay updated on new dates for the Open House and all other events, by subscribing to our newsletter which comes out about once a month.

If you want to visit the school on another occasion than the Open House, contact us and we will be happy to book a time that suits you!

INTENSIVE COURSES

Intenzio is well suited for those who have already started exploring film as a means of expression – perhaps you have made some films on your own, or taken a video editing course, or perhaps you have written a script that you want to develop into a film idea. It also suits you who have experience in other creative fields, such as still photography, design, visual art or journalism.

The course is for you who want to immerse yourself in the knowledge you already have and want to create films supervised by professional filmmakers. The course is for you who want to get a network of film colleagues with the same serious goal, to one day be part of the film industry.

As the course takes place in the evening, it is suitable for you who want to be able to combine education with work. The course is for you who during ten intensive weeks want to create film, talk about film, discuss film and realize your own and others’ cinematic ideas.

Acting – 10 weeks is both suitable for you who have some experience in acting and wish to get deeper knowledge and more training, and you who are taking your first steps to learn the basics and fundamentals of acting.

The course is well suited for people in the industry, event and stage artists who want to develop in acting, both in theater and film.

The course is suitable for you who want to invest in acting, but may not have the time or finances to take a longer full-time course.

The course is also suitable for you who plan to apply for a higher education in acting, and gives you the right knowledge and experience to increase your chances of getting admitted to such education.

The maximum amount of students in Acting – 10 weeks is 12, and in Intenzio it is 18.

The course fee for our shorter intensive courses is 29.000 SEK.
