New partner alert!
Baltic Film, Media and Arts School, Tallinn University

As from the 1st of January 2022, we would like to welcome the Baltic Film, Media and Arts School Tallinn (Tallinn University) as part of FilmEU. BFM will be a full member of the consortium. We are looking forward to the future that lies ahead!

Tallinn University Baltic Film, Media and Arts School (BFM) is a film education institution with versatile, practical, constantly modernizing film and media education. From a small local film department that started from a post-soviet society 30 decades ago, it has grown into a strong international media education hub. It is the only English-language film school in Northern Europe with Bachelor's, Master's and PhD levels, importantly, BFM’s PhD programme includes an artistic research branch. BFM has prior experiences with two internationally accredited European Commission supported joint master degrees with students from all over the world and has collaborated with FilmEU partners extensively in the past through numerous European Commission funded projects.
BFM prepares professionals for all roles in film production, TV, new media, communication, choreography, art and music. BFM students and alumni have been awarded numerous international accolades, for example, BFM's graduate Tanel Toom's NFTS graduation film "The Confession" was nominated for the Oscar for the Honorary Foreign Film award in the 37th Student Academy Awards, the first Oscar nomination for an Estonian filmmaker. In 2020, a film made for the Film Arts curriculum of the Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School won the 47th Student Academy Awards. The entry, "My Dear Corpses," was a film finished as a BA production by director German Golub, who graduated from BFM with honours in 2020 July. BFM alumni in sound design, Matis Rei, has been nominated for BAFTA TV Craft Awards 2019 for Best Sound and won the prestigious MPSE Golden Reel Verna Fields Award in 2016.

Mini pilot about Sexuality, Gender and Censorship taking place in the 2nd semester

During this academic year (2021-2022), FilmEU implemented a Challenge Module to test the Samsara pedagogical framework. The module derives from an existing ULHT module transversal web series that has been expanded to encompass challenge-based methodologies and to include an international cohort of students. 

In this module, participants will define, investigate, and address a societal challenge concerning Sexuality, Gender and Censorship by developing a transmedial production in collaborative teams drawn from four institutions: LU-Lisbon, IADT-Dublin, BFM-Tallinn, LUCA-Brussels.

During the first semester, students in teams conceptualize different first ideas. Teachers will be mobile during this semester; students will not. 

Last week, during Team Building Week in Lusófona University students, pitched their ideas and four projects were selected. The selected teams are international and will work together throughout the second semester to make the first concept from pre-production to distribution. Each student will fulfill at least two roles in at least two different productions. 

Each concept will have a Green Light Pitch moment for production feasibility, after which production on the pilot commences. In the process of production, only the project stays in its original institution, while the new-formed teams are circulating, with everyone contributing with her/his own style, approach and strength. The different pilots are simultaneously produced. The Post-Production takes place virtually in a FilmEU Lab. In the summer school, the pilots will be publicly exhibited at IADT.
