International Film Program
International Film Program
International Film is a two semester program. 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.

Gunnar’s method of working on the students’ scripts really helps to find out problems and makes the student solve them in a creative way
I came to this school knowing very a few things about cinematography and now I feel comfortable, also having two cinematography teachers in their differences works very well to get a full tuition. Shooting in 16mm was fantastic experience and learning. Great!
It was very good also the opportunity to collaborate between classes. I think I described basically everything, but once again I loved my time here this was really one of the best periods of my life
