We have awarded Voices that Matter scholarships to students from the UK, Palestine, Israel, Gaza, the USA, Uganda, and South Africa. Whichever programme you choose, whether itÐs long or short, general or specialist, a first degree, or to explore the excitement of making films, we look forward to welcoming you to the school and helping you navigate your path through the wonderful and complex world of film Filmmaking can only be learnt by making films.

  4. 4. 65 Met Film School opened its doors to budding filmmakers over ten years ago, and following its success the school decided to launch a second campus in Berlin – right at the heart of European independent filmmaking. Met Film School Berlin embodies exactly the same ethos as the London School, offering an intensive practical filmmaking experience taught by industry professionals in an active film studio. Students are able to feel completely integrated within the Berlin filmmaking community, working in an environment that is steeped in cinematic and filmmaking history. Classes are primarily delivered in English, in accordance with the school’s accreditation with the University of West London, the top modern university in London for employment. Met Film School Berlin is based at BUFA; the studio that has been home to film productions since the Weimar Republic and is one of the oldest film studios in Europe. The school’s location enables students to have first-hand experience of a working film studio on a day-to-day basis, and also places them in the heart of the city. Met Film School Berlin is also a desirable destination for non-EU students seeking the flexibility to work whilst studying. It’s possible for overseas students to work 180 half days per year (four hours a day) whilst studying in Germany. Born in 2003 First 8-week course takes place in Clapham, London. 2005 Move into Ealing Studios, London. First unaccredited one-year course begins. Met Film acquires post-production business. 2006 Met Film launches production business. 2007 25 students enrol on first BA programme validated by the then TVU (now known as University of West London). 2009 BA Practical Filmmaking launches with 119 enrolments. Meanwhile, Met Film Production’s Little Ashes and French Film are released in the UK and other territories. 2010 Teddy Cherim and Kees van Nieuwkerk’s graduation film, Sterke Verhalen (Tall Stories), is released in 34 cities across Holland and Belgium. Met Film Production’s The Infidel opens in over 40 territories. 2011 Egill Kristbjornsson’s graduation film, Paper, premieres at Tribeca alongside Met Film Production’s Donor Unknown, which is then released in cinemas in the UK. 2012 Met Film School Berlin opens. Met Film Production’s Town of Runners, conceived and co-produced by graduate Dan Demissie, opens in Tribeca and is released in cinemas in the UK by Dogwoof. Another Met Film School student, Perry Bhandal, sees his film, Interview with a Hitman, released by Kaleidoscope – a year after he pitched the idea at the school. 2013 There were commercial releases in the UK for Project Wild Thing (graduate, David Bond), and in UK and Germany for Papadopoulos and Sons (graduate, Marcus Markou) and in France for White Lie (graduate, Nyima Cartier). Also, Ross Domoney’s graduation film, The High Price of Gold, wins top prize at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival. Met Film Berlin launch sponsorship of the Madagascar Film Festival and Interfilm Short Film Festival 2014 Graduate Chika Anadu wins best feature film for B for Boy at the Africa Movie Academy Awards. BA graduate Assaf Machnes wins Best Short Film Awards at the Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival, Quinta Praia International Film Festival, Youki International Youth Film Festival, 20 MinMax Film Festival and the Sehsüchte International Film Festival. Rusanna Danielian, a One-Year (Cert HE) Practical Filmmaking student at Met Film School Berlin, won ‘Most Kissable Lips’ competition held by pharmaceutical company Devirex with her short film “Lipstick.” In 2014 81% of undergraduates from the school’s undergraduate programmes across the UK and Germany are now working in the creative industries in permanent, contract or freelance positions. ABOUT METFILMSCHOOL BERLIN SCHOOL HISTORY MET OF THE FILM
  5. 5. Berlin has a strong creative community and boasts a professional workforce of over 30,000 film, TV and creative professionals Berlin is a hub for international film production. Films produced here include Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” and George Clooney’s “The Monuments Men” The Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival) is a great cultural event and one of the most important dates for the international film industry MET FILM STUDENTS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THE WELL-RESPECTED BERLINALE TALENT CAMPUS MASTERCLASSES, WHICH HAVE INCLUDED DISCUSSIONS BY KEY FILM FIGURES SUCH AS JANE CAMPION, MICHEL GONDRY AND GAEL GARCIA BERNAL NON-EU STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO WORK 180 HALF-DAYS PER YEAR (4 hours a day) Masterclasses and workshops are held throughout the year at the school and have included award-winning Director/ Producer Jerry Rothwell (Town of Runners) BERLIN IS AN AFFORDABLE OPTION FOR STUDENTS: ACCOMMODATION, PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND LIVING EXPENSES ARE KEPT LOW 81%* of Met Film School students are now working in the creative industries in permanent, contract or freelance positions FILMMAKING INBERLINWHY STUDY FILMMAKING IN BERLIN? 87 * of the 90% of students who we are able to track, per Met Film School Annual Graduate Survey 2014
  6. 6. Berlin’s charm lies in its unique landscape and undeniably diverse culture, with its world-class museums, art galleries, restaurants and nightspots. Eating out can be an inexpensive affair for Berliners with an array of international cuisine readily available. Try the national dish “Currywurst’’, Russian delicacies, Vietnamese dishes or authentic middle-eastern falafel from the many street vendors. If you’re feeling flush then head to upscale Berlin restaurants Grill Royale and Fischers Fritz which are star-spotting hot spots during the Berlinale! Take in the sun during the summer months and chill out at Beach Bar on the River Spree, picnic in the Tiergarten, or take a refreshing swim in one of the various lakes. For those looking for a slightly quirkier experience test out your vocal cords with Mauer Park’s Karaoke on Sunday afternoons. The city is made up of 12 districts each one with its own distinct personality. Most Met Film students choose to live in the trendy districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Kreuzberg is Berlin’s most populous district and is a multi-cultural hub of bohemian culture. Bar Raval, a great Spanish “New Wave” bar and restaurant co-owned by actor Daniel Brühl (star of Goodbye Lenin) is a fashionable hangout spot for Kreuzberg locals who want an affordable evening out overlooking Görlitzer Park. Kreuzberg is also home to Würgeengel (the name comes from art-house movie classic “El angel exterminador” by Luis Buñuel, 1962), a colourful and vibrant venue with a lively atmosphere. Neighbouring downtown district Neukölln is home to Berlin’s most unconventional opera house, the Neuköllner Oper, and hosts an array of interesting old building quarters, which gives the area its vibrant urban history. For more information on where to live and the range of accommodation options in Berlin, visit the “Finding a Place to Live” page under the Admissions section on the Met Film School website at www.metfilmschool.de LIVINGIN BERLIN Covering nearly 341 square miles, it would be impossible to explore the whole city by foot. Fortunately, Berlin has one of the most extensive, efficient and affordable transport networks of any European city. The Underground (U-bahn), the overground Schnellbahn (S-bahn) and Ringbahn provide comprehensive access to most parts of Berlin and run through the night on weekends. In addition, there is an extensive network of trams and buses including the number 100 and 200 buses which offer a cheap alternative to a sight-seeing tour as they take in most of Berlin’s major tourist attractions. Check out the Fahrinfo Berlin app to help you navigate the city’s myriad transport options! Taxis are also easy to find and not too expensive. Berlin is littered with taxi ranks and there is even an app to hail one too! (TaxiBerlin) For people looking to explore areas slightly further afield, the state-of-the-art and architecturally stunning Hauptbahnhof provides access to Germany’s world-class network of national and international train lines. And getting to and from Berlin by plane couldn’t be easier with two international airports - Tegel, located very close to the city centre and Schönefeld just south of the city - and a further brand-new airport, Brandenberg airport due to open soon (though perhaps best not to ask a local when this will be!)

  7. 7. Berlin is an exciting, cosmopolitan cultural hub that continues to attract filmmakers and artists from around the world. Berlin has a strong TV, film and creative start-up community that together make up a professional workforce of over 300,000. For filmmakers, Berlin’s ability to offer strong financial incentives to international productions has made it a central player in the global market. Films produced in the Berlin - Brandenberg region have ranged from low-budget independent movies to blockbusters such as “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2”, Stephen Daldry’s “The Reader”, Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” and last year’s popular release “The Monuments Men” directed by George Clooney. The Berlinale is one of the top international film festivals in Europe and the well-respected Berlinale Talent Campus has included discussions by key film figures such as Jane Campion, Michel Gondry and Gael Garcia Bernal. Met Film School students are encouraged to make the most of this illustrious festival by attending the events on offer, which bring high profile professionals attending the Berlinale to workshops and discussions with 300 promising young film talents from all over the world. The talents profit from the experience of the professionals, who in turn gain fresh ideas from taking part and actively networking within the filmmaking community. Met Film School sponsors the Interfilm Short Film Festival, which hosts special events and programmes in cinemas across Berlin. Interfilm has established itself as one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. It is the second oldest German short film festival (after Oberhausen), and is recognised as the second most significant and oldest international film festival in Berlin after the Berlinale. More than 7000 films are submitted each year to the festival, including shorts made by Met Film School students. FEATUREFILMAt Met Film School Berlin students write, direct and edit their own films. In their last year of the BA (Hons) Practical Filmmaking programme, students work towards producing a feature film. In 2013, students developed a fictional script, drawing from experiences gained as a result of their filmmaking education and international backgrounds. The creative process was guided by Swedish Writer/Director and Met Film tutor Maria von Heland. All students had collaborative input into the way the story was produced and told. The final result is a unique narrative set in Berlin called “I Am Warm”, which features a range of global influences. For more information on this feature film project, please visit the film’s official website: www.iamwarmfilm.com SHORTFILMSIn addition to the array of films our students make on their programmes, we actively encourage them to get involved in making short films outside of their course of study, either by working on their own personal projects or by engaging with the filmmaking community through the creation of content for a range of different platforms, competitions and festivals. Rusanna Danielian, a One-Year (Cert HE) Practical Filmmaking student at Met Film School Berlin, recently won a competition held by pharmaceutical company Devirex with her short film “Lipstick.” This film will now be used globally to advertise their cold sore prevention product Lipivir®.

The school is part of the Met Film Group, which also includes Met Film Production and Met Film Post. This enterprise allows Met Film to make films, teach people the skills that they need to make films and offer postproduction services to filmmakers, keeping them completely integrated within the film Industry.

Met Film School offers a wide range of filmmaking courses including undergraduate and postgraduate courses. In addition, it offers just under 40 short and part-time courses spanning directing, cinematography, screenwriting, producing and postproduction for adults and young people alike. London has been the backdrop to an enormous range of films, from the Swinging streets of Alfie to the contemporary Harry Potter movies. When Film London was set up in 2004, filming in the capital rose by 30% making the city the third busiest filming production centre in the world, with over thirty crews shooting on its streets every day. Producers are now choosing to have their films made in the city due to the world-class facilities on offer. It has never been more exciting to study filmmaking in London. Students in London are able to experience one of the most diverse cities in the world, where more than 300 languages are spoken and a wealth of different cultures live side by side. Students will be taught filmmaking in an artistic and creative environment, steeped in cinematic history. There are now over 50 film festivals hosted in the city. Studying in London means that there is access to a range of filmmaking resources like The British Film Institute, The Cinema Museum and the Reuben Library, as well as the vast number of film clubs and societies around the capital.

In recent years Ealing Studios has been used for high-profile productions such as Downton Abbey, The Two Faces of January, Frankenstein, My Week with Marilyn, Prince of Persia, Burke and Hare, Star Wars: Episode Two, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, The Importance of Being Ernest, Notting Hill and Woody Allen’s Wasp. Met Film School’s facilities include one of Ealing Studios’ original sound stages as part of its on-site studio space. 1615

  16. 16. Created in 1917, UFA was a government-owned producer of propaganda films. UFA’s studios (Babelsberg and the now-called BUFA) were considered to be the most modern in the world. The studios employed important directors, such as Ernst Lubitsch, famous for directing sophisticated comedies, and G.W. Pabst, a pioneer in the expressive use of camera position and editing techniques. The appetite for films was huge and UFA productions expanded from the political to the more creative. UFA was key to the German Expressionist movement, funding works by acclaimed directors such as Fritz Lang and F.W. Murnau. With the move away from silent movies, UFA literally built a roof on their previously glassed-top studios and launched into a new era of filmmaking. One of the many films they produced was Marlene Dietrich’s first “talkie” The Blue Angel (1930). Challenging the power of Hollywood, UFA made films for the European market in German, French and English. Today, BUFA is an active film studio whose stages offer a wealth of filming experiences – greenscreen, live-TV studio set up, a standing set used for TV production and a large stage for commercial use. The studio is home to various industry- relevant companies including in- house production companies, a camera / lighting rental house, a film & TV prop house, a scenery and set construction company and post-production facilities. Being in close proximity to the industry offers our students access to the professional world of filmmaking. The studio is based near the trendy Neukölln/Kreuzberg area of Berlin. Students can expect a vibrant, diverse and extremely creative community. OURLOCATION BUFA 3029
