Cinema and Television studies are part of the art domain and constitute fields of special interest for the National Education. They are directly related to the development of civilization and thus are no less than a necessity and an indisputable national value not only culturally but also on a financial level. The Stavrakos School, realizing fully this importance, plays a crucial role in the actual Cinema and Television industries and the audiovisual mass media.

The state has not established a National School and left the materialization of this project to private initiative and to the good will of possible volunteers.

Lykourgos Stavrakos, a man who compined a strong sense of reality and a talent for organisation along with high artistic sensitivity, responded to this challenge. It is true miracle that Stavrakos overcame all difficulties and barriers and in 1948 managed to create a School of high standards, a School that improves as years go by.

The Hellenic Cinema and Television School Stavrakos, better known as the Stavrakos School, is the oldest School in Greece. It is the main cell and the leading centre of Cinema and Television Studies in Greece, the cradle of three generations of artists and technicians.

It consists of a group of Schools that cover the main activities in the Cinema, Television and Video education. The program of studies, the organisation and the whole structure follow the patterns of European and American faculties with which it cooperates and coordinates its activities. The work of the Stavrakos School has been widely acknowledged both in Greece and overseas. People in show business as well as the authorities consider it as the quintessence – sine qua non – of the audiovisual education in Greece.

Most of the best well-known artists and technicians in this field have come out from the Stavrakos School, while a good deal of graduates excel abroad.

The Stavrakos School is not financed in any way, state or private. Its resources are only the students’ fees and it owes its longevity to its excellent organisation, the good will of the stuff and the trust and love of the students. The School recognizes the support of its students and supports them in its turn after their graduation.

The Stavrakos School is one of the first founding and permanent members of C.I.L.E.C.T. (Centre International De Liaison Des Ecoles De Cinema et De Television). C.I.L.E.C.T. is the most official, acknowledged, widely respected universal organisation of Cinema and Television education, well known for its various activities for the promotion of the medium. The School is also a permanent member of the University Film and Video Association (U.F.V.A.) and of the Groupement Europeen Des Ecoles De Cinema Et De Television (G.E.E.C.T.).
