The State of Hessen boasts a multitude of high-quality practical and theory courses for film and media. It is one of the central aims of the Hessen Film and Media Academy to connect these courses and to create and support synergy between them, thereby enabling a further increase in their overall value. The objective of this unique approach within Germany is the supplementation and convergence of academically founded, creative and job-orientated tuition.
The hFMA set-up embodies a culture of cooperation between those independent universities represented on the management board. Its highest body is the Steering Committee. The hFMA office functions as contact, moderator, catalyst and coordinator. Student assistants at the respective universities function as
connecting links.

Tasks and Aims:

  • Interlinking and opening up of suitable courses by individual universities
  • Additional offers by teaching modules and inter-university projects developed within the network
  • Support of workshops, seminars, projects, symposia and conventions
  • Cooperation with partners from film, media, culture and the economy
  • Presentation of Hessian university productions at events and festivals
  • Providing information about study courses via the hFMA website
