Studies are largely practice-based. Approximately 500 students are taught and mentored by more than 300 highly-qualified experts from the film and media industries. From the outset, students from all courses and levels are involved in the making of films together, be it from the four year full-time courses, or, given relevant prerequisite-qualifications, the two year project-based study courses. More than 250 films in all formats are produced each year.
On a unique campus, which includes the Film Academy and its Animation Institute, the Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris postgraduate programme, and the adjacent Akademie für Darstellende Kunst, students have the best opportunity to experience broad interdisciplinary and transmedial networks and qualifications.
Close ties with media industries provide our students with outstanding career prospects, as, for example, in the form of collaborations with the Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg and numerous television stations such as SWR, HR, ARTE, ZDF, ProSiebenSat.1 and RTL.
As part of the Film Academy's international orientation,well-known lecturers from abroad regularly teach in Ludwigsburg, and exchange programmes with renowned partner universities in the USA, Canada, Israel, Poland, Lebanon and France are offered. A special teaching programme with English-spoken learning modules has been developed to facilitate visiting international students.
