Zurich Film School is shutting down over sex scandal

ZURICH (Reuters) – ZurICH FILM SCHOOL (ZFS.PA) is shutting its doors in the wake of an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by students, the head of the school’s board said on Tuesday.

Zurich police announced on Monday that a police investigation had found no evidence of wrongdoing by any of the university’s students.

The closure follows a series of accusations of sexual harassment and assault made against the university in recent months by the head teacher of a film school and by students who attended a film production school.

Police said they were not yet aware of the details of the investigation.
