Film & media programmes

After foundation courses in organization, technical studies and basic film techniques, students begin studies in the individual departments.

In the first year of foundation studies students attend courses in cinematography, screen writing, film-making, and direction. Compulsory interdisciplinary seminars include: Film Theory and History, Employment Law Regulations, Basics of Film Production, and Sequence Analysis. The Film-making and Directing programmes involve the production and completion of entire film productions within inter-departmental teams.

The 2nd year consists of an entire semester within the chosen specialization, e.g. Directing (feature, documentary or promotional film), and a semester in one of the compulsory elective modules – screen-writing, cinematography, montage/editing, film making, or animation. Film presentations take place at the end of the semester. Students must also attend compulsory interdisciplinary seminars on film history and theory.
