Information brochure


The film university's Directing B.F.A. program provides students with the theoretical, practical, and technical basics they need to develop their own artistic approach to film, television, and video media. Courses aim at testing and improving students' ability to observe and create, identifying esthetic strategies through analysis, and allowing them to try different approaches to film work in practical exercises.

The interdisciplinary film projects F1 and F2 are at the core of the Directing B.F.A. program. In these non-fictional (F1) and fictional (F2) projects, students are involved in every step of the filmmaking process: from the initial idea and the development of concepts and scripts to production, image and sound postproduction, and editing. Working with students from other disciplines, they assume responsibility for the making of these films – many of which are screened and reviewed at international film festivals.

University entrance qualification and practical experience in the field of filmmaking.
