Den Danske Filmskole (The National Film School Of Denmark)

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 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 approximately 100. All lines of study are 4-year programmes, except for the 2-year scriptwriting course.

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.
