Webgate for students

The collaboration platform for creatives and the filmmakers of tomorrow

As a student in the film industry you outgrow yourself each and every day. Your path is paved with challenges and projects. Projects that will improve your professional skills and provide experience, that you proudly present at festivals or creative competitions and which represent your outstanding achievements. We would like to accompany you along the way and support your project and ease collaboration with all parties involved. We have put together special student packages for you to claim.
