  • German Short Film Award 2014 / LIKE YOU, Franziska Pflaum (c) Dirk Masbaum für das BKM


Each year, some 170 projects - including short and feature films of any genre (fiction, documentary, animation) - are brought to completion at Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. In many cases, partners from the film and media industry act as co-producers or associates.

Student films of the film university are shown successfully at over 200 festivals around the globe and receive up to 80 awards annually. This also confirms the originality of ideas and the quality of their implementation as well as the high production value of student films.
Special projects give students the opportunity to gain filmmaking experience abroad. Films that were shot in France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Cuba, Israel, India, Vietnam, Japan, South America, the US, China, or Iran are no longer exceptions.
As the creative and economic potential of student films is becoming more and more interesting for the media industry, the film university has built close connections to national and international production companies, TV stations, and distributors. Once a year, current productions, work-in-progress, and project pitches are presented to a professional audience at the "Projektforum".


"Sehsüchte" - one of the largest international student film festivals - is another highlight of the academic year. Organized, curated, and staged by students of the film university, the festival has become a trademark and runaway success with audiences. Every year in early May, student filmmakers, international guests, experts and audience convene to enjoy the unique multicultural atmosphere of the festival with its film screenings, panels, discussions, professional workshops, and parties.
