Mission & Strategy

Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF follows an interdisciplinary approach to the artistic, technological, and academic teaching and research on the universal subject of film. Established as Deutsche Hochschule für Filmkunst and known as Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen "Konrad Wolf" (HFF), Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF ranks among the country's largest and most modern film schools and, in July 2014, became the first German film school to achieve university status.
