IAFT Hong Kong welcomes International Students
Different ideas and cultures gather together in our film and acting school in Hong Kong. Foreign students are no strangers to IAFT and we have had students from all regions of the world. Wether your passion is filmmaking or acting, our hands-on approach to training offers you a real advantage over other film schools. When you leave IAFT, you will have the skills, the knowledge and the network to succeed in the television or film industry.
The IAFT GLobal Advantage
We aren't just the Academy of Film and Television; we are the International Academy of Film and Television. When you study with us, you can divide your study at multiple campuses. Take the first two terms in Hong Kong, then head to Antwerp for your final two terms. Start your diploma program here in Hong Kong, then move to Cebu to finish. Or, take one term at four different campuses. There are lots of possibilities! With our global network of graduates, we are touching the entertainment industry world-wide.
At IAFT we believe that the best way to learn film production is by actually getting out there and doing it! Unlike university film schools, IAFT focuses your studies on the skills that matter. IAFT teaches through hands-on instruction where we let you experience the intricacies of film production first hand. Getting out there and doing is a great way to build experience and our expert film production mentors will help you do just that.
Smaller Class Sizes
Because we are a boutique film school, students at IAFT benefit from some of the smallest class sizes of any film school out there. This means you receive more training in each subject, more access to equipment, and the benefit of more one-on-one attention from our mentors. You can build your filmmaking skills faster with a small class size and more attention.
Focus on Mentorship
IAFT Hong Kong has some of the most experienced Mentors in the entertainment business, ready to help every IAFT student realize their dreams and potential. At IAFT, our mentors are all veterans of the film industry. IAFT does not hire career professors. We want you to be trained by people that know what the real-world, working industry is like. Our mentors work directly with you, sharing their experience, and developing creative relationships that will last throughout your career.
IAFT prides itself in offering Diploma and Certificate programs at a price you can afford. And since entertainment is not a degree driven industry, why go to a four-year university and spend tens of thousands of dollars? When you know that you want a career in the entertainment industry, why waste your time with required courses that you have no interest in? IAFT knows why you are here, and we won’t burden you with paying for classes that aren’t of use to you when you graduate.
An Entrepreneurial Spirit
IAFT programs are based on helping you get out there and get your career going. We want you to succeed in our classrooms, but more importantly, we want you to succeed after you graduate.
Our filmmaking program offers expert guidance in screenwriting, directing, producing, editing, cinematography and sound design. IAFT comprehensively teaches both the art and business of film. We believe in a hands-on approach, where filmmakers get behind the camera in the first few weeks, learning to use all of the gear. Every filmmaker, no matter what their final job, needs to understand and appreciate all aspects of filmmaking.
Our acting program was developed for working actors who wish to strengthen their skills and learn new techniques. Our courses offer experience in front of the camera, so students are able to review their performances and make adjustments. Led by mentors who work as actors, each course is designed to increase students’ comfort with new roles, cold readings, audition situations, and developing depth in their work.
