As a result of the Danish government’s recent decision to impose a lockdown on Denmark in order to slow down the spreading of the COVID-19 virus, European Film College is closed until April 14th.
After orders by the Danish government, all Danish folk high schools are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that students at European Film College have gone home. Students were asked to inform the office about where they were going and how.
Everyone is taken care of
In the rare cases where returning to their home country was not possible, students are able to stay at the school, where they are taken care of both in terms of meals and staff taking shifts at the school. But there is no teaching, common activities, meetings or film projects.
It is our hope that we will be able to welcome all our students back on April 14th, and we will of course stay in touch with all students to keep them updated on the situation.
Extreme measures necessary
By mid March, Denmark was suddenly the country in Europe with the most rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, and this is why the Danish government is taking extreme measures. The hope is that this will slow down the virus in a way that enables the Danish health care system to keep up and be able to support the people who will need intensive care.
If you have any questions regarding the current situation at European Film College, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our phones will be closed until April 14th, but you can contact us via email.
