Documentary film has become one of the most powerful mediums of communication. The documentary film production program at Prague Film School aims at developing students’ story telling abilities through both intensive practical work and documentary film theory and analysis.
Instruction and theory classes are based on intensive practice; every student will have to complete a series of documentary film projects or training exercises during the program
Documentary film production focuses on Dramaturgy, Script Development, Cinematography, Editing
Story telling techniques are honed through the dramaturgy and documentary script development classes, drawing upon a rich pool of international and historical documentaries crossing themes and genres.
