Retrospective of the KONRAD WOLF Film University Babelsberg, Potsdam
Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF follows an interdisciplinary approach to the artistic, technological, and academic teaching and research on the universal subject of film. Established as Deutsche Hochschule für Filmkunst and known as Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen “Konrad Wolf” (HFF), Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF ranks among the country’s largest and most modern film schools and, in July 2014, became the first German film school to achieve university status. With its unique educational concept that focuses on both craftsmanship and teamwork, its successful artistic productions, and its innovative research projects, the film university plays a decisive role in shaping the future of moving images. Moreover, the continuing education programs and events of Brandenburg’s only art school allow for the discussion of cultural, social, and political issues.
