Overall Experience
August 21, 2019 Prague A Magical City
It was undoubtably worthwhile. More than anything my learning came from observing how another culture lives from day to day. The historical learning that I have absorbed throughout my life was also given a definite and solidifying context. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Great being in Europe. The program was disorganized, but it was awesome shooting on 35mm. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about filmmaking and collaboration, definitely very worth it. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Czech Cinema
I learned how to compose a short story, Czech Culture and Cinema and that life exists outside of Middlebury. It was worthwhile because I also got to interact with students from a different University. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

The Tisch School offers this program in collaboration with one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious film schools, the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU). FAMU is an independent academy which focuses on audio and visual media. Their alumni include Jiri Menzel (Closely Watched Trains), Milos Forman (Amadeus and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and Agnieszkha Holland (Europa Europa). The FAMU faculty are active members of the Czech filmmaking community (including established cinematographers, directors, editors, scholars, and writers).  Under their expert guidance, you will have the opportunity to branch out and study 35mm sync-sound filmmaking from an entirely different tradition and culture.

Note: The Prague academic year program varies slightly from the summer program. In spring and fall you participate as director and director of photography, and work on two separate interior and exterior individual projects. For summer, you must indicate your preference for either director or director of photography when you apply, or be open to both depending on which position is available (not all students direct in the summer). You only shoot exterior projects in the summer. (It’s light out until nearly midnight in Prague in the summer!)
