The 1-year programme
There are two big secrets to our 1-year film foundation programme at EFC:
1. A constant shift between traditional class teaching, practical exercises and film production.
This offers you theoretical knowledge of film production as well as the chance to actually practice everything you learn in class. In terms of teaching, each course period consist of app. 25 teaching hours per week - and in terms of film production, our students produce more than 100 short films together during the programme.
2. The fact that students cannot pick a specific field of study, but are forced to dive into at least 3 different fields of filmmaking.
On one side, this allows our students to explore their true talent (maybe your talent is actually editing, and not directing?) – and on the other side, knowing more about other fields of filmmaking will make you better at your preferred field.
Did you know?
Between 35 and 50% of our students each year change their preferred field during the course of our 1-year film foundation programme.
