Our movie-course lessons are held in an old working-class part of the town, Kallio. The studio and editing rooms are in the second floor of an old police station which is now used as a secondary high school and referred to as Taidetalo (House of Arts). We share the building with the upper secondary high school of Kallio which is focused on articulacy, music, dancing and acting.
In the same building there also are classrooms for photographing and darkrooms for black and white developing in the jail cells of the basement. There are also atelier rooms for sculpture making, graphic arts, ceramics and painting classes.
Our main school building is a few hundred meters away, but because of repairs, it is now relocated to Haaga, which is about six miles away.
