Upon receiving your application we will contact you to arrange for an interview – at the School or online (for those of you who can’t make it to Warsaw).  



Once you have sent your application along with all the necessary documents (listed on our website) and sent a confirmation of your application payment, you will be contacted by the school within a week to set a date for your interview. Depending on whether you are already in Poland or not we conduct the interviews at school or via Skype.

The interview is usually hosted by one of our film directing professors, Mr Marek Brodzki and Malgorzata Janczak  -the school's manager for international projects. Mostly we ask about your film inspirations, the work samples that you sent us as well as some basic questions connected to film knowledge and story telling. It usually takes 15 to 20 minutes and we inform you about the results directly during the interview or within a day. All interviews are held in English.
