Netherlands Film Academy
The Netherlands Film Academy trains students to become prominent national and international creators of media productions for various platforms. The starting point is telling stories in the cinematographic tradition in which creativity, urgency and innovation are the recurring themes. The Film Academy gives students the knowledge and skills they need to master their chosen profession. They make an essential contribution to film culture through ongoing research into the relationship between image and sound and promote a critical and reflective attitude in filmmakers. Some 80 students graduate every year from the eight bachelor's programmes and the master's programme at the Netherlands Film Academy. The Academy has over 60 people in their permanent staff and about 200 guest lecturers. Since 1999, the Film Academy has been housed in a building on Markenplein that meets all the standards of modern film education. The Netherlands Film Academy was founded in 1958.
