bohemian summer

Summer programs offer the chance to turbo-boost your skills doing the thing you love. The four-week workshops immerse you in a total creative experience where all you have to do is think about your stories/characters and realize them alongside others who share the same passion as you. Students leave the course creatively fulfilled, skilled and with several films under their belts. Disproving the maxim “no pain, no gain,” the ratio of learning to enjoyment is 1:1 – or more accurately 100:100. And Prague, incidentally, is one of the world’s most beautiful summer cities.

Filmmaking

Summer Workshops

Next open dates:

  • June Filmmaking Workshop: June 5 – July 2, 2022
  • July Filmmaking Workshop: July 3 – July 30, 2022
  • August Filmmaking Workshop: July 31 – August 27, 2022

Covering screenwriting, directing, camera, editing and sound, the four-week summer workshops at Prague Film School are designed to lead the student from story idea to finished short film.

The first two weeks of the program are classroom-based – introducing the fundamentals of directing, screenwriting, editing, cinematography and sound while also prepping students for their end-of- workshop short film. Each student writes and directs his or her own short while also working on other student productions in various crew capacities.

The third week, students shoot their films – five minutes in length and shot with the assistance of the school production office, providing access to one of Europe’s largest props and costumes studios and the city of Prague as the film set.

The final week of the program, students edit their films, all of which are screened at a public cinema and reviewed by the faculty. Some might even end up hitting the festival circuit.
