Prague Film Institute is divided between two campuses. Your regular lessons are taught on our primary campus in the city center. Special classes and editing bays are situated on our secondary campus in the hub of the filmmaking industry, just down the road from Barrandov Film Studios.
In our school is located a self-sufficient green screen studio with a fully equipped lighting grid. The green screen can be switched for a black curtain for a more black box look. Powerful lights can be added from our plentiful equipment supply which is just a few meters away in the Equipment Room.
Students have access to a cinema inside our school. The cinema room offers the opportunity for students to watch their projects on a big screen and get feedback from their tutors during the post-production process. Our teachers (directors, editors and other members of our post-production team) use this room for conducting in-depth film analyses on the works of renowned filmmakers. Our cinema room houses two editing stations with all the latest software (Adobe Premiere Pro, Pro Tools, Da Vinci Resolve Studio, etc), which can connect to the projector for editing and sound lessons.
Our modern classrooms are full of amazing technology and equipped with 98” flat screen TVs and foldable furniture which can instantly covert the rooms into open spaces, suitable for practical workshops.
One of our greatest assets is our large collection of professional filmmaking equipment. All together our equipment is above the standard quality for filmmaking schools in Europe. Our ethos is to prepare our students for a career in the global film industry, so we teach our students on the same equipment which is used to make big-budget feature films, commercials, and music videos. This equipment is stored in our sun-filled small classroom; this classroom is used for classes such as scriptwriting and film theory.
Our fully-equipped kitchen, with a refrigerator, microwave, espresso machine, and tea kettle, is available for you to store and prepare your meals. If you prefer to eat out, we can guide you towards affordable lunch options in the surrounding area of Mala Strana. Come here for an afternoon coffee or tea break between your classes. We provide coffee and a variety of teas for your enjoyment. This sun-filled room will be a pleasant place for well-deserved break during the school day.
This is exactly where students gather when they feel like having a coffee, chatting with fellow classmates, or simply working in a pleasant environment. The Chill Out room and terrace are complete with comfortable furniture and tables.
At Prague Film Institute you get connected to all our industry partners, get to visit their premises and learn how they work in the professional environment. Besides making valuable connections in the industry during your studies, you can get a chance to use our partners premises for your own projects.
For the shooting of your final film, you will have access to an outdoor area of 40 000 m2 in Chuchle district, in the middle of the woods. In the area you can also find several km of tunnel with mining carts which stands on a rusty narrow gauge rail track.
