The Faculty of Film and Television has been founded in 1990 as the youngest of the three faculties of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. With more than 150 films produced every year, ranging from short exercises to medium-length films, it is the most important film school in Slovakia.
Housed in a modern new building, the faculty offers ten academic specializations: scriptwriting, fiction film directing, documentary film directing, editing, cinematography and photography, animation, sound design, production and management, audiovisual studies and last but not least, visual effects. The facilities of the faculty include a film studio, editing rooms and a sound studio.
