Film Business Management, Deal-making, Marketing & Sales, Rome, Italy

With all its lights and shadows, the film industry remains one of the strongest sectors worldwide, and it is arguably the most influential.

In terms of raw figures, the film industry is one of the biggest sources of importation income for the US, and film studies are offered in hundreds of colleges and universities.

This course aims at three primary goals and has three different levels of utility:

It will improve your capacity to identify and face challenges, establish priorities, find solutions, organise processes, manage personal relationships and, moreover, manage your own creative potential.

Along the course, you will learn the fundaments of filmmaking and will accomplish a solid foundation upon which you may grow in any direction. Once there, the course will help you choose your area of interest and will provide you with the proper tools to specialize.

But, most important, this course is about who you are, what you truly want and how to achieve it. In short, it is about creating, facing and fulfilling your dream. Because, both, the film industry and yourself can be rightly seen as that: factories of dreams.
And this course is about helping these factories work for good.
