Mission & Strategy

HFF München is conceptualized as a place of comprehensive education and professional training. Our aim is to advance the development of talented young people as artistic personalities, to encourage and support them on their path toward an individual style of cinematic expression.

HFF München upholds a tradition of comprehensive training in all aspects of movie-making – from creative design, film craft and technology, to media business and science – while placing equal emphasis on free space for esthetic experimentation, the innovation of film language, and a complex, content-focused discourse on cinematic storytelling as a reflection of social reality.

HFF München “learning by doing” is our central methodological approach, with all training focused particularly on the students’ own film production efforts. It is through this creative process, supported and guided, that students acquire an understanding of the special principles of creative work.

HFF München strives to advance – in the truest sense of the word avant-garde – both current cinematic discourse and formal standards. The university accordingly aims to not just serve the current needs of the movie and television market, but to enrich it with artistic personalities, so as to provide a major impetus to filmmaking in Germany.
