Mission & Strategy

The Film and TV Department, which is generally called the National Film School was founded in 1993 by the legendary documentary film director Henrikas Šablevičius whom students and colleagues called by the nickname Šoblė (Shoble). At the core of the School’s philosophy are Šablevičius’ personal values: professionalism, strong and vital artistic ideas, respect for good tradition, ability to express ideas in an exceptionally unique way and, to quote the great master, “to move forward without stopping at unnecessary and passing things”. Film and TV Department slogan TRADITION MEETS CREATIVITY & INNOVATION.

The complexity is at the heart of Film studies. Therefore a cluster of study programmes such as directing, cinematography, screenwriting, sound directing, film management, film study (theory) and acting are offered at the same time and the same study cycle. Multidisciplinarity is a characteristic feature that distinguishes the film and TV studies within the academic scope of the Academy. Students and teachers of the School cooperate with colleagues representing other art disciplines including music composition and performance, dance and drama. This continuous interaction naturally generates new and innovative ideas.
