One of our favourite questions to ask our new film students is 'how did you make your first film?' As the years pass, the answers get more surprising. Filmmaking has become increasingly accessible with the inventions of high quality camera phones and others. This means competition on the market is more fierce than ever. So when considering your options for film school it’s critical to ask, how will your experience give you an advantage?
When we describe our facilities, community, quality of instruction, uncompromising support, and location, we give you an image of why dBs Berlin is “no ordinary school”. It takes all these elements together to create our motto of passion in progress. This means not only is there intense joy in everything we do together, but also that together we will demonstrate how passion is the key to success.
Our newly renovated state-of-the-arts facilities here in Berlin are just a few years old. But we are building on the legacy of our institution which has been operating since 1999 in the UK. In 2013 we opened dBs Berlin to give our students access to the diverse and established art scene found here. Home to Berlinale and the European Film Market, this event is a must-attend for anyone looking to have relevancy in the industry.
Your lessons will take place at our purpose built spaces in our main education centre in the buzzing Friedrichshain district. Accompanying the instruction from our industry experienced tutors will be guest lecture events, to give you even more exposure to what’s happening today and how the future will look. This practical insight offers you a comprehensive look into not only technical expertise but also real industry practice.
If you are looking for a comprehensive introduction to Filmmaking, our one-year diploma programme is perfect. It’s also also a fantastic way to re-energise your mission as an artist, re-hone your skills in visual narrative and spend an exciting year abroad. You will also create an impressive showreel of 30 films!
If you are looking a high-value accredited degree, consider our (Hons) Bachelor degree which is administered through the University of St Mark & St John in the UK. This 3-year programme is for those who want to dive deep into concepts, theory, technical expertise and practice.
