With the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, the Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart, the Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart and the Academy of Performing Arts Baden-Württemberg, five renowned schools in the training of young creative and technical talent have been won as partners.
The Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, founded in 1991, is one of the largest film academies in Germany with around 500 students. Internationally, it is one of the most renowned film training institutions with an excellent reputation. This is ensured by a strongly practice-oriented teaching concept, which is implemented each year by more than 500 top-class guest lecturers from the film and media industry. With the “Campus Ludwigsburg”, the Filmakademie offers its students a unique qualification opportunity through networking between the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and the Institute for Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction located on the campus, the Ludwigsburg-Paris Studio and the Academy of Performing Arts.
Academy of Performing Arts Baden-Württemberg
The Academy of Performing Arts Baden-Württemberg (ADK), founded in 2007, prepares students comprehensively – and in a combination that is unique in Germany – for careers in stage and film. The course of study aims at a practice-oriented, project-based education, within which cooperation between direction, dramaturgy, acting, film and new media, as well as stage and costume design, is initiated across all classes and courses of study. The study concept of the Academy of Performing Arts sees the interdisciplinary orientation as its central core. The cooperation with the Filmakademie on the joint campus as well as the cooperation with the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and its course of study Stage and Costume Design makes it possible to react to an art that is undergoing massive change and that demands more than ever before that today’s theatre professionals take a broad stand and educate themselves beyond the boundaries of their own profession. For this reason, the ADK, in addition to providing sound training in theatre, provides for integrated projects that test new forms – especially with new media – across areas and genres, and promotes national and international exchange.
