BEST OF LODZ FILM SCHOOL

 

During the upcoming 22nd edition of the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography CAMERIMAGE we will screen films from two prestigious European film schools – Lodz Film School (The Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz) and FH Dortmund (Fachhochschule Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts).

 

 

 

 

The Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School was established in 1948 in Łódź and is considered one of the oldest and most prestigious film schools in the world. In August 2014 it was ranked 2nd in The Hollywood Reporters' „The Top 15 International Film Schools” article. Its mission is to educate directors and cinematographers of both live-action and animated films, lighting designers, still photographers, editors, screenwriters, producers and actors. Students gather practical and theoretical knowledge, and shoot their own projects on film or digital under artistic guidance of acclaimed Polish and international filmmakers. The school takes great pride in its unique master-apprentice relationship, which resulted in an amazing array of projects made by its alumni, including: Andrzej Wajda, Roman Polański, Jerzy Skolimowski, Zbigniew Rybczyński, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Jerzy Wójcik, Adam Holender, Witold and Piotr Sobociński, Andrzej Bartkowiak, Sławomir Idziak, Ryszard Lenczewski, Jerzy Zieliński and Paweł Edelman.
