Since its founding, in 1966 (or rather the commencement of instruction in 1967), HFF Munich has been shaping talent for tomorrow’s films. Its best-known alumni include Caroline Link, Doris Dörrie, Maren Ade, Janine Jackowski, Bernd Eichinger, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Wim Wenders, and Roland Emmerich. After the early days in a villa in Munich’s Schwabing art quarter, in 1988, HFF relocated to a former bed-spring factory in the city’ working-class Giesing. Then, in September 2011, HFF welcomed students and faculty to its current, brand new Bernd-Eichinger-Platz premises, in the heart of Munich’s Kunstareal museum quarter.
The FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH has its origin at the HFF. The former professor at the HFF Munich, Wolfgang Längsfeld, founded the International Festival of Film Schools in 1981, creating an opportunity for film students from all over the world to show their films to an international audience.
