The Polish National Film School
The Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz was established in 1948 and is considered one of the oldest and most prestigious film schools in the world. In August 2014 it was ranked 2nd in The Hollywood Reporters’ „The Top 15 International Film Schools” article. Its mission is to educate directors and cinematographers of both live-action and animated films, lighting designers, still photographers, editors, screenwriters, producers and actors. Students gather practical and theoretical knowledge, and shoot their own projects on film or digital under artistic guidance of acclaimed Polish and international filmmakers. The school takes great pride in its unique master-apprentice relationship, which resulted in an amazing array of projects made by its alumni.
