Filmacademy Baden-Württemberg

Since it was founded in 1991, Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg has become one of the world’s leading film academies. The project-oriented “learning by doing” concept has greatly contributed to this.

Master's Programmes

Arts, Design & Architecture (1)



Studies are largely practice-based. Approximately 500 students are taught and mentored by more than 300 highly-qualified experts from the film and media industries. From the outset, students from all courses and levels are involved in the making of films together, be it from the four year full-time courses, or, given relevant prerequisite-qualifications, the two year project-based study courses. More than 250 films in all formats are produced each year.


Close ties with media industries provide our students with outstanding career prospects, as, for example, in the form of collaborations with the Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg and numerous television stations such as SWR, HR, ARTE, ZDF, ProSiebenSat.1 and RTL.

Student Life

Campus life

A central feature of the Ludwigsburg campus is that the four educational facilities are autonomous in terms of their curriculum content, while simultaneously being interlinked on many levels. Each institution has first-class staff and technical equipment, a far-reaching international network, and a team of outstanding performers and practitioners. This inspiring coexistence and community carries an interdisciplinary spirit, which crosses the borders between narrative forms, genres, and technologies. The options involve film, animation, theatre, the latest digital post-production technologies, transmedia formats and much more in a spatial proximity which is unique in the European academic landscape.
