The Met Film School is the UK’s leading film school for individuals who are looking to launch a career in the film, television and media industries. We have now opened a campus at BUFA, Berlin.
Met Film School opened its doors to budding filmmakers nearly ten years ago, and following its success we decided to launch a second campus in Berlin - the heart of independent filmmaking. Met Film School Berlin follows exactly the same ethos as our London School, offering an intensive practical filmmaking experience taught by industry professionals in an active film studio. Students are able to feel completely integrated within the Berlin filmmaking community, working in an environment that is seeped in cinematic and filmmaking history. Classes are primarily taught in English, in accordance with our accreditation to the University of West London, however we will be offering some of our short courses also available in German from Autumn 2013.
Met Film School Berlin is based at BUFA; Berliner Union-Film GmbH and Co Studio KG, the studio that has been home to film productions since the Weimar Republic and is one of the oldest film studios in Europe. The school’s location enables students to have first hand experience of a working film studio on a day-to-day basis, and also places them in the heart of the city.
BUFA is an active film studios whose stages offer a wealth of filming experiences for our students – Greenscreen, Live- TV studio set up, a standing set used for TV production and large stage for commercial use. The studio is home to in-house production companies, a camera / lighting rental house, a prop house, a set building company and post-production facilities. Being in close proximity to the industry offers our students access to the professional world of filmmaking.
The studio is based in the trendy Neukolln/Kreuzberg area of Berlin. Students can expect a vibrant, diverse and an extremely creative community.
Practical experience: On most of our courses, students write, produce, direct and edit their own short films and are supported by their tutors and a professional editor. Students benefit from hands-on experience via numerous shooting and directing exercises, tailored coaching through one-to-one and group sessions, and access to state-of-the-art digital technology.
Preparing you for your career: We work hard to prepare our students to make films that will work in cinema, but we also understand film in the broader sense, and prepare students for new career paths within the changing digital landscape by providing insight into the various platforms through which film can now be enjoyed, from internet video and mobile devices to video-on-demand and HD TV.
Programmes to fit your needs: We select students who show passion, talent, and determination to succeed. Whether you're a school leaver looking for an intensive two-year degree programme, a graduate looking to build on your academic experience with a highly practical and immersive programme, or a working professional considering a change in career - we have courses to suit.
