Semester Abroad: Stories from Bonn

Eighteen SFTV students made the trek to Bonn, Germany to live, work and play as part of LMU’s Semester Abroad program. Situated on the Rhine River, Bonn is the hometown of Beethoven and is the ideal location for cultural excursions including festivals, film studio tours, exhibitions and trips to other European countries.

Students who participate in the program live with German host families while taking courses in production, cinematography and editing taught by both LMU and German professors. Throughout the semester, students work closely with the Academy for International Education and collaborate with peers to each create a 10-15 minute documentary shot in Europe and later screened on the LMU campus.
