The International Film Production Program is a two semester foundation course. During two semesters you’ll study script writing, directing, cinematography, film production, sound and editing through practical exercises as well as seminars and lecturers. The first semester is dedicated to the fundamentals of practical film making which prepares students for more in-depth studies during the second semester. The second semester 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 second semester, the students make a feature film together.
To ensure a high level of quality and each student’s individual development, we only accept a few students each year. The educators and administrators work daily to ensure that each student has access to all aspects of an excellent film production education, and excellent opportunities to develop and succeed as a professional within the film business in Sweden and abroad.
Our educational model is based on the simple method of learning by doing and subsequently analyzing what has been done. When that is done we go out and do it again. This process is repeated over and over until the students begin to master the film language. In parallel, each student is encouraged to search for their own creative voice. Theory comes in when we analyze the films we make.

INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR STAY IN SWEDEN
EU/EEA/Swiss citizens -you should register for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in your home country before coming to Sweden. This card gives you the right to medical care at the same cost as Swedes.
Non-EU/EEA citizens: stays of less than one year – If you have a residence permit valid for a period of less than a year, you won’t have access to the public health insurance. Students who aren’t covered by the public health insurance must arrange for their own insurance coverage, as medical treatment can be very expensive without any form of insurance. It’s highly recommended to arrange for health insurance from your home country so that you’re covered during your trip to Sweden and as soon as you arrive.
Stockholm Film School does not have the possibility to offer accommodation for students.
The average price range for rooms in Stockholm is €400 to €1000 a month depending of the distance to the city centre.
There are several webpages that offer accommodations, for example blocket.se and andrahand.se. Although the majority of rentals posted online are legit, you should always follow these three simple rules for your safety:
1. Never pay before signing the contract.
2. Ask the landlord for their personal id when signing the contract to validate their information (they will do the same with you so don’t be shy).
3. Pay the deposit only to a Swedish bank account.
