About filmmaking

If you have the passion for film and a real desire to learn what it takes to put it together from idea development to postproduction, have a look at our practical filmmaking courses. Explore different genres, find your voice and learn the core technical and creative skills – from camera operating to developing and pitching your idea.


We recommend our practical filmmaking courses to everyone who wants to get familiar with filmmaking process and learn the core screen crafts such as screenwriting, directing, cinematographyproducing and postproduction. However, the courses will be especially beneficial for those who’re looking to direct their own films. If you’re interested in real-life content rather than fictional, check out our documentary courses.

Our courses

We offer a variety of filmmaking courses from undergraduate (BA) and postgraduate (MA) to short (full-time and part-time). The majority of our short courses are for complete beginners but if you’re already familiar with filmmaking process and would like to expand your knowledge into new areas, check out our two-week full-time courses.
