Welcome to the School of Film
The School of Film at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was established in 2004 and it is the first public higher-education film school in Greece. Its creation as the fourth department of the School of Fine Arts at A.U.Th. came to fill a significant gap in film education and to respond to a long-lasting request of both the film and academic community.
The educational philosophy of the School combines practice with theory, while the five-year undergraduate curriculum covers eight artistic/applied areas (scriptwriting, film direction, production, sound and music, set and costume design, cinematography, editing, augmented/virtual/mixed reality) and one theoretical, that of the theory and history of cinema and television.
Welcome from the Head of School
It is with great pleasure that I welcome all our students to the School of Film for the new academic year 2021-22 and I wish good luck in this new beginning.
Returning to the classrooms fills us all with joy, despite the anxiety about adapting to the new conditions. The Covid-19 pandemic is not over and requires great care and responsibility from all our staff (teaching, administrative and technical) as well as from our students. However, the high rate of vaccination observed among us creates a sense of optimism that the year will go smoothly and steadily without significant obstacles and especially without delays in the in-person conduct of the semester.
It is important that in our School we begin with the new reformed study program, which aims at the best and most qualitative education of the students in all the subjects.
We are also beginning this year with new collaborations with institutions in the wider field of the audiovisual market, a fact that will continuously enrich the educational program with side activities and synergies.
Happy academic year!
The Head of School
Professor Eleftheria Thanouli
