Prague Film School is one of Europe’s leading school's providing training in the core disciplines of filmmaking. The school's accelerated programs, its international faculty and its world-class facilities draw applicants from all over the globe bent on converting a passion for film into a profession.
Prague Film School trains aspiring filmmakers and actors to become film professionals. This is accomplished through a praxis-heavy curriculum involving students in up to 30 productions annually, many of which end up in the Industry's top film festivals.
The prevailing ethos of Prague Film School is a mix of European art-house and American independent cinemas. Up to 100 filmmakers annually enroll, drawn from the best schools around the globe and from a wide range of professions and backgrounds.

Different from many national film academies or major private film schools, Prague Film School is characterized by its small size. This lends a particular intimacy to the educational and filmmaking experience, promoting close work relations with teachers and young filmmakers and affording easy access to filmmaking facilities.
Based in Prague, it is the city of Prague itself that plays a leading role in the students' experience at PFS. Professional productions come from all over the world to shoot in one of the world's most beautiful capitals. Students at Prague Film School have the city available to them all the time, as a classroom, as a home and as a film set.
Prague Film School is located smack in the center of the historic city.
WHY STUDY AT PRAGUE FILM SCHOOL
Praxis-oriented: One would be hard-pressed to find a program that provides as much practical exposure to filmmaking. More than 400 films are shot per year at Prague Film School and students in the year program participate on as many as 30 productions. The operating principle of Prague Film School is training, and we believe as with instruments or with languages, the only way to develop fluency is to practice.
