This villa style cozy campus has a total capacity of 70 students and is housed within a residence which features typical Belle Époque architecture. It is located 15 minutes away from Paris Gare du Nord by public transportation. This campus enjoys an outstanding location, 2 minutes from a city lake and 5 minutes away from the lively city centre.
The residence in a few words
This 1,150 m2 villa style residence and its courtyard are located in the heart of Enghien-les-Bains, 15 minutes from Paris and close to the Parisian studios (Mikros, Illumination Mac Guff, etc.) and Ile-de-France film sets (TSF, etc.).
Many films were shot in Enghien-les-Bains due to its spectacular casino and its Belle Époque architecture.
Enghien-les-Bains is part of the UNESCO internationally recognized digital arts network of Creative Cities. It is therefore part of a cultural and digital ecosystem.
The following cultural facilities are located nearby: Théâtre du Casino (performing arts theatre), media library, school of music and dance, François Villon cultural centre and a flagship venue: the Arts Center.
The Arts Center is a multidisciplinary venue which offers a film club dedicated to the history of special effects, exhibitions (one of which was dedicated to the work of ARTFX students), live performances and annual festivals such as the Paris Images Digital Summit (PIDS), a festival dedicated to special effects
The professors at Villa ARTFX are experienced specialists who often simultaneously work in Parisian studios. Students therefore receive both educational supervision and professional preparation.
Enghien-les-Bains, a French style villa set
Enghien-les-Bains is the only resort area in the Ile-de-France, with a 43-hectare lake (protected site) to sail, row, pedal boat or fish at. With a 3 km perimeter, the lake is a tempting place to take a stroll and admire the architectural heritage of this “creative city”, a remnant of the Belle Époque.
A pioneer in the digital arts, the city of Enghien-les-Bains has built up expertise recognised in France and abroad.
Relying on innovation, it has crafted a cultural policy and ecosystem recognised by the Unesco “creative city” label for digital arts.
Enfin, Enghien-les-Bains est à 20 min du centre de Paris et de sa vie culturelle (musées nationaux, grandes expositions, festivals, cinémas…)
