Coming Up

There are currently no upcoming SELECTION CRITERIA classes but do check back soon.

A selection panel of three (an established filmmaker from a diverse background and a representative from both the state screen agency and AFTRS) will assess applications based on the following criteria:

  • the applicant generates excitement about their creative potential; and
  • the submitted story idea/s have the potential to generate fresh on-screen experiences for audiences

This is a competitive process so applications that best demonstrate these criteria will be supported.


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.
