About this project

YFS trains young Myanmar nationals in all aspects of filmmaking including production, direction, screenwriting, camera, sound, editing and post-production.
Stymied by the lack of further education opportunities – there are no film schools in Myanmar – as well as other constraints, many creative young people in Myanmar are crying out for inspiration and encouragement to develop their artistic skills. These talented people are also keen to support changes that are taking place in their country at grass roots level.

Described by one local partner as a ‘milestone in capacity building,’ the European non-profit organisation Yangon Film School (YFS) aims to create a diverse media culture in Myanmar by training a creative young workforce that is also capable of meeting the audiovisual needs of Myanmar’s development sector.

The Yangon Film School offers a range of audio-visual workshops for emerging Myanmar filmmakers that blends theory with practical, hands-on exercises. An inspired, dedicated team of international filmmakers comprise the tutor group. It is their aim to foster an environment of productivity and open-minded individual creativity.
