FAMU in the 1960s as Symbol of Change
The Faculty of film and television underwent dramatic changes during the 1960s, most of which had resulted from a building renovation plan designed in 1960. The number of departments, divisions and courses increased, and this went hand in hand with the increasing number of students. There was also remarkable improvement in teaching conditions. The concept of the school’s curriculum was well elaborated integrating both theory and practice. FAMU won awards at many film festivals abroad which brought the school international recognition.
