The International Film programme is a two year programme and taught in English. The first year is dedicated to the fundamentals of practical film creation which prepares students for more in-depth studies during the second year. The second year offers students the opportunity to specialize in specific fields with the goal of every student developing their talent, realizing their visions, and laying the groundwork for a future in film.

During the programme, you will learn about screenwriting, directing, photography, lighting, sound, editing, dramaturgy, leading production, technology, and much more within the creative and artistic film creation process.
