Films made in the course of the year program reflect a gradual progression from the basics of filmmaking to the successful completion of a well-crafted film. Each stage of the process is developed under the supervision of the faculty whose courses cover theoretical and technical topics aimed at deepening knowledge and honing technical skills.
The year program is divided into two semesters. First semester, each student completes foundation courses in screenwriting, directing, cinematography and editing. Students also enroll in two elective courses while receiving additional training in sound, lighting, camera movement and grip.
Practical exercises are integrated into the curriculum and each student directs 4 films while working on another 16 to 20 productions in some crew capacity.
During the second semester, students specialize in one or two areas of their choice. Each specialization has its own curriculum. As part of the specializations, each student writes and directs 2 to 3 films and works on another 12 to 14 productions in various crew positions.
The great emphasis of the second semester is placed on the Diploma Film, which should be of film festival quality.
