The scholarship
for film production

BWS Film production

“Lights, camera, action” for the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for film production. As a student at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg, you can apply for a scholarship that will take you to Los Angeles, the film capital of the world. Through intensive instructional units, workshops, and internships, you will gain insight into the world of Hollywood, and learn about how major studios work, from developing material and production to marketing a film. 

During the third year of your studies, you can apply jointly as a six-person team for the “Fiction Alexa” programme: You will spend around three months working with the support of cooperating French film school la fémis in Paris to produce a roughly fifteen minute professional short film – a better recommendation letter would be tough to find!

Target audience
Students at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg (Ludwigsburg)
Scholarship amount
€ 1,500 to 6,000
