International School had a welcome party for two exchange students from LA FEMIS on April 12 to greet their exchange study in BFA.
Both of the French exchange students came to China for the first time and they are attracted here by the extensive and profound culture and long history of China. Besides, both of them feel honored to have exchange study in the largest Asian film academy. In the following more than one month, the two students will work with two Chinese directing postgraduates on documentary photography instructed by Prof. Yang Lin from Department of Directing. The exchange study project between BFA and LA FEMIS has been operated for two years. Two students of Department of Screenwriting and Film Studies went to France for exchange study last year and obtained too much.
Plenty of overseas students studying in BFA attended the party. They feel curious about teaching and course arrangement of LA FEMIS. Both parties know each other well through conversation. Several overseas students said that they would like to help them produce a documentary about China.
The International School will conduct more exchange student projects in the future to let BFA and well-known international film academies understand each other and make progress together.
