The Netherlands Film Academy trains students to become specialists in the film industry. Collaboration between these specialists is a particular characteristic both of the industry itself and of the teaching at the academy. Students learn all the techniques they will need to enable them to carry out their profession at the highest level. They are trained to be true film makers and given plenty of scope to develop their talent and their own voice and style.

Artistic Research is explored in the Master of Film programme. Thinking and doing, making and reflecting are intrinsically interwoven within this programme. The Master programme, the LAB and the Artists in Residence make an important contribution to the development and innovation of film itself and the wider field.
