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. Each exercise, large or small, is followed by a discussion and evaluation. We believe that knowledge becomes skill after practical experience and reflection; this is the fundamental core of our educational strategy.

"I had no contacts in the film industry whatsoever, and knew next to nothing about filmmaking when I started Stockholm Film School. Here I stepped into a world where everyone talked about, and made film. The teachers were dedicated professional filmmakers. I learned all the basics, and since we shot on celluloid a lesson learned was the importance of planning and making well-calculated decisions. Apart from that I met many film mates, and we still hang ot together."
ARIL WRETBLAD, Director of Photography twice awarded with the Guldbagge award for Zozo and Snabba Cash
"I really liked the education, and the life at Stockholm Film School! When I graduated high school I felt that this is a place where everyone was so dedicated and filled with the will to make film. I already knew I wanted to be a cinematographer, and shot a lot since most of the others wanted to direct. When I finished Stockholm Film School I knew a lot about film which I first discovered while working as an assistant. I learned the basics well. If you learn what a film shoot entails, and understand what is demanded of an assistant then you will get a job. I meet many people in the film industry who are former students from Stockholm Film School."
ELLEN KUGELBERG, Director of Photography
"Stockholm Film School gave me an invaluable foundation to stand on, and the possibility to make mistakes, test stuff and work as much as I wanted and needed. This was a good headstart into the film business, and gave a lot to those who wanted. I have always desired an overview and to stand in the background, so after finishing Stockholm Film School I started my own company with myself as a producer together with a classmate. We at once had great opportunities to grow in the music video industry, within little time we had worked with big artists and today, a few years later I am an investment consultant in film, and executive producer between Stockholm and Los Angeles."
DANIEL BRAMME, Head of acqusition for Scandinavia, Big Air Studios Los Angeles
"At Stockholm Film School I discovered what I wanted to do. There I had the opportunity to try out different functions within filmmaking, and to meet professionals. I realized my greatest interest lies in following a story from the beginning to the end. That is why I applied - and was accepted - to the Film Production education at The Stockholm Academy of the Arts."
MIMMI SPÅNG, producer
”I knew I wanted to make film, but not exactly in what capacity, so it was great to learn all the different functions and the whole work process. I got a job as editor after the Film School. Today I am the CEO of a post production company and I have enormous use of knowing film production on all levels. It creates trust with my customers and I can be both supportive and make better decisions. At school I met many cool film mates with whom I am still in contact."
FILIP HAMMARSTRÖM, director and producer
"I had fun at Stockholm Film School, but first and foremost, I had wonderful teachers who were professional, industrially-trained artists who shared everything they had from the industry with us. Directing teacher Moberg and photographer-teacher Holmberg tested our Abilities constantly, and made me aware of how to work with actors, as well as all the technical and visual one needs to learn about a camera. "
SEBASTIAN IVERSEN SøGÅRD, filmmaker, director and producer
” Stockholms Film School is a place where you meet passionated teachers and students and be able to experiment and learn about filmmaking. Through systematical and intensive classes and exercises, it was a great opportunity to find out what my interest and strength are within the filmmaking process. 열정 넘치는 선생님들 그리고 학우들과 함께 영화 제작에 대해 마음껏 고민하고 실험해 볼 수 있는 좋은 장이자, 체계적이고 강도 높은 과정으로 영화 분야에서 나에게 어떤 흥미와 장점이 있는지 발견 할 수 있는 좋은 기회였습니다.”
