AFTRS First Nations

AFTRS First Nations supports and identifies pathways for talented First Nations storytellers.

With a long and proud history of providing deep learning in film literacy and the broadcast industries enabling our storytellers to be authorities of their craft, AFTRS is a national and global leader in education and training.

Supporting First Nations storytellers is important to AFTRS, which is why when we relocated from North Ryde to Moore Park the decision was made to incorporate the Tjamu Tjamu Indigenous art wall into the fabric of the building.
