Building Berlin's community of creatives
Film and music: A natural symbiosis
There has always been a rich history of collaboration in the creative industries. Music is reliant on filmmakers, directors and producers on creating visuals for music videos and adverts, and the film industry relies on musicians when it comes to creating audio for film and sync.
As a BIMM Institute Berlin student, you’ll benefit from a range of unique collaborative opportunities across both music and film.
Our courses evolve through working closely with industry partners and advisors. We listen to what the creative industries value most when it comes to graduate skills and behaviours. This ongoing industry engagement ensures that what we offer is continuously aligned with what the industry needs.

The film and music industries in Berlin
Berlin is paradise for the creative individual. It’s experimental, innovative, freeing and alive. It is home to a vast network of artists, labels, venues, media outlets and music tech companies. If you get your Friday night right, you won’t be home until Monday. It’s no wonder so many artists have flocked this way in recent decades – from David Bowie, Brian Eno and Iggy Pop, to Nick Cave, U2 and Bloc Party.
Alongside this musical metropolis is a world-leading film industry. Thanks to the outstanding production infrastructure – including the famous Studio Babelsberg – great funding conditions and the creative atmosphere, Berlin attracts producers, film distributors, streaming portals and VFX companies from all over the world.
The Berlin Music Video Festival is a testament to how film and music professionals are working together more and more. It’s one of the primary networking events for the video and music industries in Europe, aiding collaboration and breaking down barriers of genre and medium. There’s never been a more exciting time to join the industry as we work together to pave the way for a new kind of creative interaction.
