Dean Thomas Stenderup

Bachelor of Fine Arts

The Norwegian Film School offers a three-year full-time artistic education for filmmakers.


Students considering NFS choose to apply to one of nine Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) programmes:

  • Cinematography
  • Directing
  • Editing
  • Producing
  • Production design
  • Digital visual design
  • Screenwriting
  • Sound design/technique
  • Documentary
Filmproduction at The Norwegian Film School

Six students are admitted to each BFA discipline every two years, and over the course of their studies they receive a combination of intensive training in their own discipline, a thorough understanding of the principles of “dramaturgy” (storytelling) and “cinematurgy” (audio-visual storytelling), film history, philosophy of art as well as participating in a number of production exercises involving all seven disciplines in teams set by the School.


The goal of the program is to educate and train highly qualified artist-practitioners in film, television and related media to cultivate, disseminate and renew moving-image arts, crafts, and entertainment, in their respective specialisations and in the Norwegian film industry as a whole.
