- Admission / Tuition
The Screenwriting and Directing department represents a perfect choice for those who wish to be the authors of their own films, write screenplays as well as directing. During this 120-credit diploma study (two years) students write scripts for various film genres which they in turn direct and bring to completion. The department has proven extremely popular and a vast number of dynamic filmmakers have graduated from the faculty.
The goal with the education is that upon graduation the student will have acquired a firm understanding of the basics of filmmaking and is capable of working independently on his or her own film projects as director, screenwriter or both. The department seeks students with an artistic vision and great ambition.

“The best about The Icelandic Film School was being able to spend two years to concentrate on filmmaking and get the freedom to make plenty of mistakes while learning new things”
“These two years in IFS where extremely important to me , because there I met people on the same wavelength as me. I got a taste of what it’s like to work with my hobby and received guidance in many technical parts of the film that later would benefit me in other areas”
