The Prague Film School is a key center for the European film culture, which prepares its students to narrative filmmaking, documentary directing and film and television acting. Since 2002, the school has attracted young talents from all over Europe, turning their passion into a profession. Due to its small size, the school is characterized by a cozy, inspiring atmosphere, which makes it so different from other film academies and leading private schools in Europe and worldwide.
The perfect blend of European cinematic art and American independent cinema create the ethos behind a program designed for 80 directors every year and up to 400 short films are produced during the 9-month academic year, epitomizing the school's hands-on approach.
At the heart of Prague Film School lie the skills brought in by students from all over the world, who make it possible for the school to stay true to its longstanding approach, featuring an impeccable combination of the extreme attention to detail and high quality of the European art-house and the signature style of American independent cinema.
