Wed 4 March –Sat 7 March | Private Event | In English

The third consecutive Tampere Bootcamp brings together young, international film students. At bootcamp, the students can present their own films and talk about filmmaking with professionals. The event gives a platform for networking and solves one of the filmmaking problems: “When you share a link to your film, the chances of it being opened are rather slim. Tampere Bootcamp allows us to see everyone’s work and immediately connect the maker’s face to the film.” – Vertti Luostarinen, Tampere Bootcamp participant 2018 and 2019.

The intensive education and networking event deals with the entire project of filmmaking from script to filming to marketing and distribution. The five-day programme of Tampere Bootcamp comprises students’ film screenings, discussions, workshops and lectures. The participants are also offered a unique chance to receive personal feedback from professionals. The rest of the programme at the Tampere Film Festival supports and bolsters the Tampere Bootcamp and offers an authentic film festival experience.

HFF Munich at Bernd-Eichinger-Platz

“Filmmaking is the finest profession in the world.” Florian Gallenberger should know. He studied film directing at HFF Munich. First his film Quiero ser won a Student Academy Award, directly followed by an Oscar for best short film. Today, Florian Gallenberger continues to make movies, while teaching students as an honorary professor at HFF Munich.

Do you too dream of making filmmaking your profession? At HFF Munich, one of the most renowned film schools in German-speaking countries, you can choose one of five courses of study. 

Since its founding in 1966, or rather since instruction began in 1967, HFF Munich has trained the movie talents of tomorrow. The school’s illustrious alumni include Caroline Link, Doris Dörrie, Bernd Eichinger, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Wim Wenders and Roland Emmerich. During the early years, classes were held in a villa in Schwabing, until their relocation to a former bed-spring factory in the Giesing section of Munich in 1988. Finally, in September 2011, the school moved to its newly built facility in the heart of the Munich art district. Here, all our study programs have been united under one roof. From its film and television studios to a separate post-production wing, plus its three screening rooms – our center offers all the facilities needed to make both filmmaking and film studies the finest activity in the world.

Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) – The Degree Programme in Media, Film and Television 

Our mission is to give the students a broad understanding of genres, styles and production workflows of film, television and related areas. The specialisations include production, screenwriting, cinematography, editing and sound design. In addition to that, there are options to learn e.g. directing, documentary, and animation. We want to explore the new delivery platforms and transmedia concepts of the future, but keep in mind the art traditions in the field too. 

Our courses are taught mainly in Finnish, but our perspective is international. In Mediapolis campus we co-operate with our Degree Programme in Media and Arts (taught in English) and with the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation (Yle) and private companies. In addition to BA degrees, we have three master’s degree programs: MA in Screenwriting and MA in Emerging Media, both in English, and MA in Media Production in Finnish.
