Our alumni Abhishek Bhadrraa produced his first independent film The River in My Village.
The film won the Best Social Impact Award and Audience Choice Award at the Emerging Artist Festival of the Asian Culture Association of Florida, USA.

Congratulations Abhishek!


The rule is without exception that the most beautiful film stories remain misunderstood in their time. Except for the real filmmasters. They have sixth sense.

Правило без исклучок е дека најубавите филмски приказни остануваат неразбрани во своето време. Освен за вистинските филмски мајстори. Тие имаат шесто сетило.


We like to thank everyone that visited the projections for this year Halloween Film Festival and with that donated maybe a small amount for them, but a huge one for SARA!

Check out our latest interview with one of our students from the Directing department!

Meet Jake Ramsay from New York City!

"Yo! My name is Jake Ramsay. I just finished my first year as a student of FIOFA’s directing department.

I’m from the U.S., where I worked for years as an independent filmmaker and production assistant in New York City.

When I heard about FIOFA I was immediately interested, due to it’s connection with FAMU, Prague (the top ranked film school in Europe, according to Hollywood Reporter). I was skeptical whether FIOFA would truly be the same caliber film program as FAMU, but I was proven wrong. FIOFA’s faculty consist 100% of FAMU professors— all top industry professionals— who alternate time between Macedonia and the Czech Republic. What’s more, because FIOFA is solely a master’s program, here in Macedonia 100% of the focus, energy and resources are devoted to the work of the master’s students.

FIOFA is located in the beautiful, peaceful and historic town of Ohrid, Macedonia. Coming from New York City, I was worried that my creativity would be stifled living in a small town, but that hasn’t been the case. I’m constantly awed and inspired by the people and natural beauty of Ohrid, as well as the influx of tourists from all over the world. In fact, I think it’s an ideal place for serious filmmakers to work on mastering their craft, because there aren’t the distractions and complications of city living. We’re a tight knit group here because FIOFA and filmmaking are basically our entire lives during the school year.

The best part about FIOFA is the diversity of people, brought together by their passion making good films. On my most recent FIFOA produced film, LOOKING AWAY, I was an American director working with an Indian producer, a Turkish cinematographer, a Czech editor and a Macedonian as screenwriter, VFX editor and set designer. Collaborating with colleagues from different parts of the world is challenging, but ultimately the most rewarding experience, which brings about truly unique work.

The philosophy of FIOFA’s directing department is to provide an environment in which directors can find their individual style and their own distinctive voice. This means support and guidance from the professors, but also creative freedom to tell the stories that are important to us. For me FIOFA is the ultimate master’s program.
