The 8,5-month programme:
Find your skills - discover your voice

The 8½-month programme at the European Film College is a place of opportunity. Opportunity to explore and develop your ideas, your talent and yourself. Opportunity to take chances and make mistakes and to do it in a safe, encouraging and inspiring environment. Join the programme and get the chance to produce, live and breathe film for almost a year. Work and live in a place where your fellow students, your teachers, the films you see and the professional filmmakers you meet will come from all corners of the world.

During the 8½-month film foundation programme you get the opportunity to:

  • Immerse yourself 110% in hands-on filmmaking (European Film College is a boarding school, so all meals and accommodation are included)
  • Take courses in directing, acting, screenwriting, camera, documentary, editing, sound design, lighting and producing
  • Develop your special creative skills under the guidance of professionals from the film industry, working in the Danish folk high school tradition
  • Get massive hands-on experience combined with common lectures and screenings
  • Be part of an intense film environment where you and your fellow students will produce over 170 films in 34 weeks, using state of the art film equipment
  • Learn about all aspects of the film world, including how to work in real film crews
  • Start an international network with fellow students and filmmakers from all over the world

The next 8 1/2 months programme starts 24 August 2020.
