Our teaching proposal is the result of the many hours dedicated to our students and our profession, hands on, during years of shootings and classes.

Bande à Part A School that teaches Film Thinking.
In order to make films, inspiration is not enough. Not even talent. It is necessary to learn to use it. What are films made of? How did the great film-makers make them? Get to know the works of art that created the art of cinema. The ones that changed it… and apply it to your films!

Our Scheme of Work offers you in-depth training that stimulates your creativity and prepares you to work in the industry. We pursue an all-around training for you as a film-maker, by joining quality teaching with personalised care.

Bande à Part is a place of study and multidisciplinary debate about cinema and culture. It is a crossroads for both students and teachers from all over the world alike who are united by their passion for film creation.

At Bande à Part you will get to know all the different ways to make movies, we will teach you all the rules and then encourage you to break them so that you can express your own search. In contrast with an ever-growing homogeneous, stagnant cinema, our objective is your creative freedom.

Bande à Part promotes new film-makers, in that through our production company El Dedo en el Ojo you will have the opportunity of producing your own movies. The entire infrastructure of a professional production company will be available for your projects.

Throughout your studies, apart from your practical exercises and academic projects, you will be able to shoot FREE PROJECTS, using the cameras, electric material, editing and post-production rooms and infrastructure in the School. We arrange all the paperwork, be it administrative (shooting permits, film qualification, contact with suppliers) or artistic (contact with actors, actresses, make-up artists, specialists) for your project.
