Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris

La fémis and the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg have created a common continuous training programme, which is validated by both schools. One session of the course takes place in London in partnership with the National Film and Television School of Beaconsfield.
The main objective of the course is to offer a new generation of future producers and distributors a realistic and concrete view of present strategies in screenwriting, financing, production, distribution, marketing and selling of European cinematic works in Europe, based on cases studies from France, Germany, and the UK.

The other objective of this course is to teach participants the development in common of a commissioned production.

During the Atelier programme, participants are part of an 18-person team from an average of eight nations. 

The year is divided into classroom phases and practical work. The latter involves excursions to TV stations, film festival visits and a one-month placement in distribution or international sales. At the end of the training year you produce your own short film, which you will start to plan from the very start of the course at Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris.
