BFA’s fusion with ELTE, a high-level, “ivy-league” University

Budapest Film Academy (BFA) and Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) have joined forces to launch an English and Hungarian language film academy in Budapest. From the 12th of September 2011, we will start with our program: practical film studies to students who would like to become industry professionals.

The founder of BFA, Jenő Hodi, received his Masters degree in film at Columbia University, New York, under the guidance of Milos Forman and Brian De Palma. After graduation, he worked as writer, director and producer in the US and Western Europe for many years.

Budapest Film Academy offers film training with a global perspective, in line with ELTE’s academic system, accreditation and other requirements. Students from Hungary and all over the
world will study to earn ELTE’s new, empirical filmmaker degree.

BFA/ELTE will work closely with higher education institutions abroad, film- and post- production studios, production equipment rental companies, production offices, as well as with international and local distributors.

The academy’s faculty is ideally made up of highly qualified academic scholars and leading figures and award winners of the film industry, who lend not only their knowledge, but their
networking to students. The most gifted students will soar under the mentorship of foreign and local professionals with extensive professional background. The Academy will also facilitate
semester-long exchange programs with institutions abroad.

BFA offers additional practical classes towards ELTE’s Bachelor Degree, and together with ELTE has a Master’s Degree program which includes the following modules: directing, screenwriting, producing, acting, cinematography, editing, and sound engineering.

In addition to the joint program of BFA and ELTE, every semester we invite one of the world- famed masters of cinema to teach a special, creative filmmaking workshop.

The above mentioned film programs and degrees:

BA in Liberal Arts with optional specialization in Film Theory and Film History

MA practical, filmmaker degree from ELTE Department of Film Studies

Creative film workshops with world-famed masters of cinema

ELTE’s curriculum of film analysis, film history, genre theory, and aesthetics is wonderfully complimented by Budapest Film Academy’s practical courses. The Academy also aims to give
insight into film financing and co-productions. Our brand is to treat filmmaking as not only a form of art, but as a business.

Filmmaking is increasingly turning global. The best film schools have accepted this fact, and have learned to adapt. Graduates of Budapest Film Academy will commence their professional career with a competitive edge, in their field of specialty and in other areas of filmmaking too.

BFA----/ELTE is a one-of-a-kind institution of higher education, where graduates will receive help to land jobs in film. In other words, students will not only learn how to express themselves
through film, but how to make their celluloid dreams come true.
