We give students the chance from day one to make short films and create/ crew on features, as far as we know we are the only institute in Europe or the US who does so. Our dream, as an alternative Barcelona film school, has been to create high energy, high impact intensive courses that would catapult students and professionals faster and better on the road for their career.
We’ve created a series of workshops, short courses and year-long courses which guide, nuture and engage both students and professionals. Today Afilm is a melting pot of creativity and productivity, the place where many leading international directors and creative professionals chose to come to share and support young filmmakers.
We are based in Sitges, just 30 mins south of Barcelona city Centre. Sitges is a Mediterranean coastal town, located in the Garraf area in the province of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. Sheltered by the Garraf mountains and due to its geographical position in the Mediterranean, Sitges has a warm “micro-climate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year. Moreover, throughout the year numerous events take place in this beautiful town: the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, Carnival, the Festa Major, Theatre Festivals, The Barcelona-Sitges Vintage Car Rally, Harvest Festival, concerts … the list goes on.
At Afilm you’ll meet fellow international students who’ve been handpicked from around the globe. Committed to making this a more tolerant, just world through storytelling- join us for the most hard-core, inspiring year of your life.
