International multi-award-winning and Academy Award nominated documentarymaker Joe Berlinger launches the 2012 Graduate Diploma in Documentary Course this week.

Joe Berlinger's visit to AFTRS, to lead a series of masterclasses, was made possible courtesy of the generous support of Kim Williams AM, in memory of his parents through the David & Joan Williams Documentary Fellowship.

Berlinger is the director of the extraordinary Brother's Keeper, Crudeand the smash hit Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and his third installment of Paradise Lost: Purgatory was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2012 Academy Awards.

AFTRS is thrilled to have Joe at the School this week and we firmly believe that it is opportunities like this visit that sets AFTRS apart in terms of the quality of the learning & teaching experiences we provide to our students.


The Australian Film Television and Radio School would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners, the Bidjigal people and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, on whose land we meet, work, study and teach. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from all nations of this land.
