Preparation of courses for the current semester will begin immediately so that school work can begin as soon as possible, Morgunbladid reports.

The agreement includes that the film school’s operations will be backed with a state contribution of up to ISK 46.2 million (USD 385,000, EUR 292,000) until the end of this year and up to ISK 56.4 million (USD 470,000, EUR 567,000) in 2012.
