About Filmmaking Diploma at dBs Berlin

30 Films in 36 Weeks!

Develop your creative vision and hone your craft through practice.

To give you a real head-start to your filmmaking career, we’ve designed our Filmmaking Diploma around the idea that learning is doing. This means you won’t find any ‘traditional’ classrooms in this dBs Film programme. Instead, participants will spend a year making films non-stop. No lectures, no homework, no tests: just filmmaking!

Over the year you will produce thirty film projects! You’ll receive instruction and support for each of these through a 3-part combination of roundtable discussions, training workshops and consultations. Every project is designed to hone the basic tenets of storytelling while simultaneously encouraging you to follow what excites and interests you. Your films can take the form of fiction shorts, documentaries, commercials, music videos... whatever you like. Genre and format aren’t important; telling a story is.

TERM TIME: Sept 21st 2016 – July 2017
COURSE FEES: from €700 per month
