“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.
