The objective of the mentoring programme is to support and enhance the teaching process so as to give the students an opportunity to confront their artistic output with the international professional environment. These hands-on stays are not part of the curriculum, they do not substitute any subjects, and are not recognised with credits, unless the study programme guarantor and Head of the Department rule otherwise.
The programme is open only to the students of accredited programmes in Czech and English who, at the time of application, are regular full-time students in the 2nd or higher year of a bachelor’s programme or any year of a master’s programme or are waiting for the state final examination.
A student or a group of students can propose the mentor directly in the application (see below). Mentors may also be suggested by teachers, Heads of Departments, study programme guarantees and/or the faculty management with a specific idea of the type of programme and participants from among the students. The suggestions must be submitted to the Vice-Dean for International Relations through e-mail – in such a case it is not necessary to fill in an application form.
FAMU aims to finance all types of mentoring programmes so that the students are reimbursed for all the costs of travel and stays (fares, accommodation, travel compensations).
Students can consult a Czech or international artist in any field on their artistic output. The students shall justify their choice in a motivation letter to illustrate the benefits of consulting the specific mentor for themselves. If the artist can participate, the consultations may take a distance form or the form of a stay.
Preparation of this type of mentoring takes 3-5 months.
Students can apply for a hands-on stay during the filming in the Czech Republic or abroad or in the form of shadowing on location, in the studio, etc. Students shall justify their choice in a motivation letter to illustrate the benefits of the specific stay for their study and/or project.
This form of mentoring is the most difficult one in terms of organisation and finance, and students should expect to start the preparation for such a stay at least 10 months in advance.
A student or a group of students (i.e. crew working on a film together) can suggest invitation of a Czech or international filmmaker. If the workshop materialises, it will be open to other FAMU students, though the initiator(s) will be registered with preference. They must justify their choice in a motivation letter to illustrate the benefits they expect for their project.
Organisation may take 3-6 months.
The student prepares an application – see the list of documents below – in which names a specific mentor. During the preparation of the documents for the application, it should be taken into consideration that the selection depends on mentor's willingness to participate, time and financial possibilities of the faculty. It is advisable to list two or three options and count on more variants. However, in general:
Two application submission deadlines are announced during the academic year. Deadlines for submission of further applications will be announced in December 2023.
During mentoring, the student continuously documents his experience and the development of his creative thinking, which he then freely captures in the final report, which has a lenght of at least 4 standard pages and the following structure:
The report must be submitted within one month from the end of mentoring to the address firstname.lastname@example.org
