Whilst Hollywood might be regarded as the hub of the film industry, Europe packs a pretty impressive punch on the cinematic stage. Indeed, many of its cities –  Berlin, BudapestPrague and London amongst them – offer a wealth of relevant subject matter for film studies groups.

Whether its the moving image or the media, Broadway Tours can put together an exciting itinerary, combining visits to various film and media platforms, be it TV and film studios, newspaper or print houses, with the principal landmarks and attractions each particular destination has to offer.

And let’s not forget the popularity of photography. From the International Center of Photography and MoMA in New York to Amsterdam‘s FOAM and Press Museum, there’s plenty of photographic opportunity on both sides of the lens.
