ABOUT EUROPEAN
FILM COLLEGE

The European Film College is one of the best European film schools when it comes to teaching the basics in filmmaking. We are a Danish folk high school, offering young people from all over the world an 8½-month intense, hands-on film foundation programme (in English). Students and teachers live on campus, creating a uniquely intense and social environment, evolving around film. During the summer we also offer a selection of 1-week film seminars and workshops (in Danish).


The European Film College is a film school located in Northern Europe, in rural Ebeltoft, Denmark, and is unique in its approach to teaching filmmaking. Anyone with an interest in making films and learning about films is welcome, and we have students from all over the world, usually more than 25 nationalities at once.

We are self-governing and non-profit, subsidised by the Danish government.

Because it’s a boarding film school, you will live and breathe film 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even when you’re not in class or working on a film production, you will be screening films, talking films, analysing and discussing them.

The European Film College offers two types of courses: the main course, an 8½-month film foundation programme (in English), and summer courses, a selection of 1-week film seminars and film workshops (in Danish).

On this website you should be able to find all the information you need about all the activities here at our film school. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to contact us!
