Film School Network

  WHAT IS FILM SCHOOL NETWORK (FSN)?

The Film School Network (FSN) is a networking project which aims to promote the exchange of ideas and practices surrounding Film Education between film schools all around the world. The main purpose of the project is that of creating a wider, transnational knowledge around filmmaking, in order to better train the future members of the industry.
 

These intentions find concrete realisation in the exchange of teachers and students between the schools, and in an annual meeting among the members. 

The first FSN meeting will be held from the 6th to the 8th September 2019, in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. As we teach filmmaking, and are influencing the future film makers, this year’s discussions will revolve around the main topic, “Film teaching and the future of Cinema: ethic, consciousness, audiences and markets”, focusing mainly on the teaching approaches adopted by the film schools involved. This is why we would like to invite you to join the FSN yearly meeting, giving you the opportunity to present your activities and to join panel discussions with the other participating film schools.

Alongside with the panels and discussions, every evening there will be a showcase of student films produced by the schools. It will be a great occasion to share and discuss the productions paths related to the projects.

 

WHY?

  • We have found out that every country, every institution, given a common frame and field of activity, develops its own way of approaching and teaching filmmaking. We believe that these unique approaches have a great value, in that they provide a fundamental point of view worth understanding and sharing.

  • With the creation and enlargement of a network between schools, we aim to constantly exchange best practices on film teaching and student filmmaking, wishing to empower each school with the knowledge of cinema teaching practices from around the world.

  • We also aim to provide opportunities to share and develop staff expertise across every partner. 

  • We wish to encourage the development of different and innovative ways of working and film teaching and making with partners. In this sense, the meeting would also represent a development of our teacher and student exchange programs (STEP) between schools.
