European Film College


The European Film College is more than a film school. We are a Danish folk high school, offering young people from all over the world an 8½-month intense, hands-on film foundation programme (in English). During the summer we also offer a selection of 1-week film seminars and workshops (in Danish). Students and teachers live on campus, creating a uniquely intense and social environment, revolving around a film.

The European Film College is located in rural Ebeltoft, Denmark, and is unique in its approach to teaching filmmaking. Anyone with an interest in making films and learning about films is welcome, and we have students from all over the world, usually more than 25 nationalities at once.

Because it’s a residential school, you will live and breathe film 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even when you’re not in class or working on a project you will be screening films, talking films, analysing and discussing them.

The European Film College offers two types of courses: the main course, an 8½-month film foundation programme (in English), and summer courses, a selection of 1-week film seminars and workshops (in Danish).
