The National Film School of Denmark




In order to be admitted to The National Film School of Denmark, you must be able to speak and understand Danish.

The National Film School of Denmark is a state school, financially supported by the Danish Ministry of Cultural Affairs.

The school was founded in 1966 by Theodor Christensen and is beautifully situated on the small island of Frederiksholm in the harbour of Copenhagen.

There are four study programmes available: film, TV, scriptwriting and animation directing. The number of students is 96: 60 film students, 6 scriptwriters, 18 TV students and 12 animation directors. All lines of study are 4-year programmes, except the scriptwriting course that lasts 3 years.

The school is an art school but practical knowledge is also very important. The teaching programme is a mixture of theoretic and practical training and includes a large number of exercises and productions. The students' final project is a film produced on a professional level and presented to the public on national TV. No diploma or former education is in itself a guarantee of admission. All students must pass an entrance test including both practical exercises and interviews.

Director Poul Nesgaard has headed the school since 1992. The number of employees amounts to about 50 persons, including teachers, technical and administrative staff. A large number of guest teachers are temporarily employed. The school also arranges courses for film and TV professionals from abroad and seminars with the participation of other Nordic countries.
