Education

3iS was set up 30 years ago by film professionals and graduates of top French audiovisual schools Fémis (formerly IDHEC) and ENS Louis-Lumière to prepare students for careers in filmmaking and sound.

At 3iS we see ourselves not so much as training students, more as honing the talents of future generations of creatives. With over thirty years of teaching excellence under our belts, we harness our expertise to design custom-tailored courses that empower each of our learners to unlock their creative potential.

3iS trains people to succeed in the creative industries. We don’t just teach them the skills they’ll need in this fast-moving sector—we give them the tools to forge a lasting career. 

Research

Through video shoots, official interviews, stage lighting and sound engineering, creating audiovisual and digital content, media communications and more, students gain real-life experience in the fast-paced creative skills economy. They are involved in celebrity events, like the César Awards, and work alongside respected figures in their disciplines, giving them a chance to develop their professional network.

Career

87% of our graduates find professional opportunities in the 1st year after graduation. The Business Relations Department makes professional integration its primary mission. 

That's why every student benefits from our network of over 1,800 partner companies. Students also participate in internships throughout their time studying at 3is, building their networks before obtaining their diplomas.
