Sarajevo Film Academy

Experience

In October 2010, University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology launched the ambitious Sarajevo Film Academy, the first private film school in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the only filmmaking school in South-Eastern Europe with a full curriculum taught in English.

In only seven years, Sarajevo Film Academy has become a catalyst for the development of a new generation of international filmmakers from over 40 countries and all corners of the world including Australia, Canada, Brazil, Columbia, Croatia, France, India, Venezuela, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, UAE, UK, USA, Italy.

We believe the Academy is an important and certainly ambitious project we are carefully growing into one of the most exciting places to study film in this part of the world.

The Sarajevo Film Academy focuses on the field of film directing and offers Bologna certified undergraduate (BFA) and postgraduate (MFA) programs, which are committed to providing highly competitive education in different areas of filmmaking.

The programs are developed as an interactive platform with three basic sections: theoretical lectures, practical workshops, and - most importantly - film production.

They place a strong accent on practical work in filmmaking combined with the development and exploration of the filmmaker’s own creative voice.

The three-year BFA program represents an agile and exciting platform for new and developing filmmakers. The focus is always on practical work, while SFA staff works closely with students through navigating challenges of diverse courses bringing together theory and application.

A mentorship structure ensures that each student has a great deal of attention in completing the set film exercises and short films, while being engaged in modules, workshops and masterclasses.

The two-year MFA program offers opportunities to young film authors in development of their artistic expression.

SFA Dean's Message

The creation of the Sarajevo Film Academy is a result of a long career both in filmmaking and education that has led to certain convictions of how best to equip the new generation of artists from all corners of the world and give them the upper edge in integration into the film industry.

Classes and one-to-one tuition give attention to individual needs of the student, both in directing and the additional filed of specialization that each student chooses.

We believe a top quality education in filmmaking should be accessible to anyone with the drive, ambition and talent to make movies; all who share our passion are welcome.
