Basis of Values
The European Film College believes that film, television and the internet are the most influential media today. Young people must be equipped with the ability to understand and interpret these media and to express their own ideas within them. Film is an ideal medium for cross-cultural communication, to strenghten personal development, creativity, mutual understanding and cooperation. Add to this, respect for the craft and a professional attitude to the tasks at hand.
