Program description

Acting - Film and Theater

If you have a profound interest in film and theater, this education is for you. The Acting program is a one-year education, with an option to apply for a second year where you train as a film- and theater educator.

Program content


During the first year you study film acting and classic stage performance. The cooperation with our school’s Film Program will give you increased knowledge and understanding of the entire film process as well as screen acting.   The combination of film and theater is what makes the Acting Program unique as a folk high school education. The personal and artistic development is essential. You will work both independently and together in groups. You train techniques such as drama, speech, motion, improvisation and role design. The main focus is on content and storytelling. This is why we spend time a lot of time analysing, as well as giving and receiving feedback with regard to your own and other students efforts.


In order to apply for the second year, which is a post-secondary education, a secondary degree is required (from a vocational or preparatory program). The year is aimed at production, and focus will be on your personal development as an actor in film and theater. You will also be trained as a film- or drama educator, which entails the opportunity to work as an educator in the future. The number of students admitted to the second year is limited. After applying to Year 2 you will be  submitted to a new selection process. You can also apply to the second year if you have previous, comparable schooling or experience.

Film and Theater Trade Contacts

During the program you will meet several guest lecturers who are professionals and experts in certain areas. This includes, among others, actors, directors, make-up artists and choreographs. Study trips are planned to production units (film, theater). We also collaborate in projects together with Region Värmland’s film counselors. Together with students from the school’s Film Program we also go on a study trip to Greece (during Year 2). The purpose of this trip is to visit a number of interesting and theater related places, as well as to act in the film(s) made by the Film students on location.  


Molkom Folk High School’s six dormitories have a number of 64 rooms in total. All are single rooms, a small number of them with their own bathroom.

The rooms are furnished with a bed (including mattress), desk, chair, bookshelf, bedside lamp and clothes closet. We also have a few rooms where dogs and cats are allowed (after clearing this with our house prefect). In case of room shortage we will apply twin bedroom placing at the beginning of the semester.

Accomodation includes rent for your room 7 days a week and full board Monday-Thursday (breakfast, lunch and dinner), Fridays include breakfast and lunch.

Accomodation cost Single room 4475-4880 SEK/4 weeks Single room with bathroom 5080 SEK/4 weeks

The accomodation cost is billed monthly in advance. Since months vary in length, the monthly cost vary as well. When you receive your first bill you will also be presented with a preliminary billing plan for the rest of the semester.

During the Christmas holidays you only pay half the rent. During other breaks (one week or longer) there is no boarding cost. Termination of your accomodation agreement (before the school year has ended), is due 30 days in advance.

(All sums are adjusted during the Spring semester for the following year)


All students are insured through the school’s accidence insurance policy, boarding students are insured full-time as well as during internships (in Sweden). As a boarding student you need to have a personal home insurance covering your personal belongings. An additional all risk insurance is also required for students at the Film Program.

Common Areas

All dormitories are equipped with a stove, fridge/freezer, microwave oven, waterboiler/coffee brewer, television set and wireless internet. The kitchen is designed for basic cooking. Some dormitories are equipped with a laundry room. There is also a sauna in one of the dormitories.

It is well equipped with high technology and also contains a workshop, make-up lounges and storage areas.
