In the bachelor & master of Audio-Visual Arts there is the choice between film and animation film at the very beginning of the course programme.
The film department gives a global training to become a filmmaker. Therefore, we do not draw a sharp line between fiction and documentary, film and video, between the technical and artistic component. We do not turn out directors, scenarists or producers in the strict sense of the word, but personal filmmakers. This is what makes this course program unique in Flanders.
Our animation film department was the first one of its kind in Europe and remains an international point of reference. An animation film is composed image per image. Classical media such as drawing, with a pencil and pen as well as a computer, take an important part in the animation film making process. The film and animation film workshops are completely digitally equipped, as are the photography workshops.
