Tag der Offenen Tür am 07. Oktober 2017

Prospective students can find out more about application requirements and courses at the DFFB in a series of study advisory sessions on 7th October 2017 (from 11.00 to 18.00).

Alongside information and advice on studying specific disciplines (directing, production, cinematography and screenwriting), there will also be general advisory sessions on studies at the DFFB.

The DFFB will also be organizing guided tours, offering visitors an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes.
As well as presentations of the sound studios, we’ll be showcasing our modern postproduction suite, which enables us to work on all filmmaking steps in-house, from initial filming to the digital print.
Our cinematography students will be presenting further technical highlights, and demonstrating some of the DFFB’s camera and lighting equipment.

In addition, visitors can also find out about our two postgraduate programmes, SERIAL EYES and UP.GRADE, as well as the Filmnetzwerk Berlin, which aims to organise regular get-togethers for Berlin-based filmmakers.
And of course our in-house cinema will once again be screening selected films from the over 200 works created at the DFFB by our students over the course of a year.

You can find the full programme here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
