Master of Fine Arts Degree in Filmmaking (MFA)


Dear applicant to the Norwegian Film School’s Master of Fine Arts in Audio-visual storytelling:


We are currently performing a major overhaul of the curriculum of our MFA programme. The changes that will be implemented are extensive, and necessitate a completely revamped application procedure.


Because of this, we find ourselves in the position of letting all previous applicants know that we cannot transfer existing applications to the new programme. We will be publishing updated information on our website in the coming weeks, and anyone still interested in an MFA from the Norwegian Film School is invited to submit a new application once the new procedure and deadline are published.



The driving force behind NFS’ pedagogic and didactic approach is the belief that arts education is fundamentally about developing the competence of the individual artist’s artistic expression. In this context, learning is about the ability to apply skills and knowledge gained in an increasingly conscious and sophisticated way in the creation of the artistic work.


In addition, NFS programmes are informed by the fact that filmmaking is a collaborative process, where individuals working in different artistic disciplines must cooperate in order to realise a coherent artistic vision.


NFS works systematically to create and maintain a culture of trust in teaching and learning which enables the students to make and share the personal investment necessary to achieve artistic development and professional success at a high level.
