Brussels Media and Theatre School RITS Receives Royal Title, Becomes RITCS

His Majesty King Philippe of Belgium has awarded a Royal Title to Brussels media and theatre school RITS. The Royal Palace has confirmed the news to RITS’s Director Dieter Lesage. The Royal Title presents an excellent occasion for a name change for Erasmus University College Brussels' School of Arts. The institution's supervisory board has decided to rename RITS | School of Arts to RITCS | Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound. "Theatre" covers all degrees in drama and stage management, while "Cinema" addresses the full spectrum of professional en academic education in audiovisual arts, including television and animation film. "Sound" finally highlights all study courses in radio and sound engineering within the audiovisual arts.


RITCS was established in 1962 as the Flemish equivalent of the French-speaking film- and theater school INSAS, also located in Brussels. Today, RITCS has its headquarters on Antoine Dansaertstraat in downtown Brussels, with 700 students enrolled in various bachelor’s and master’s degrees in audiovisual arts and drama. It is a full member of the international film and television school network organisations CILECT and GEECT. According to Dieter Lesage and Erasmus University College Brussels Director-General Luc Van de Velde, the Royal Title confirms RITCS’s position as a School of Arts of vital importance to Belgium's cultural life.
