The Norwegian Filmschool
The Norwegian Film School was founded by an act of the Norwegian Parliament, and opened in 1997 as a faculty at Lillehammer University College (LUC). It offers both bachelor and master education in filmmaking. Education at Norwegian Film School is financed by the state and free of charge for students. The school maintains a strong and dynamic relationship with the professional film industry in Norway and beyond, with both the full-time teaching staff as well as guest instructors coming from active careers in the Norwegian and international film industries. The school offers nine Bachelor of Fine Arts programmes: Cinematography, Directing, Editing, Producing, Production design, Digital visual design, Screenwriting, Sound design/technique and Documentary. The goal of the program is to educate and train highly qualified artist-practitioners in film, television and related media to cultivate, disseminate and renew moving-image arts, crafts, and entertainment, in their respective specialisations and in the Norwegian film industry as a whole. The Masters programme is a two-year education offered within the following disciplines: Directing, Screenwriting, Producing, Cinematography, Production Design, Digital Visual Design, Editing, Sound Design and Documentary Directing.
