A girl is being filmed by a camera. Her face is blurry in the background, but we can see it clearly in the screen of the camera.

We foster film education.


FILM+SCHULE NRW (FILM+SCHOOL NRW) is a joint enterprise of the Ministry of Education of North Rhine-Westphalia and the LWL (Landschaftverband Westfalen Lippe, roughly: Regional association of Westphalia-Lippe).

Since 2008, FILM+SCHULE NRW has fostered the digital film literacy of students in classroom contexts as well as in extracurricular learning environments such as cinemas.  

By supporting teachers, offering further education to multipliers, and providing teaching materials, films and digital learning tools such as the internationally available app TopShot, FILM+SCHULE NRW is taking steps towards improving media and film literacy in schools across the state.


TopShot is an app created by FILM+SCHULE NRW specifically for a low shreshold introduction to film analysis.

It allows students to explore the basics of cinematography and postproduction. Interactive environements demonstrate various film language elements such as camera perspective, colour correction, sound design or assembling shots into sequences.

The app is available to download for free in multiple languages, including English.
