Our Industry Network

Since its inception in 1973 as the national film, television and radio school, AFTRS has been empowering Australian storytelling talent.

We believe Australian storytelling is vital to building our cultural identity and connecting with one another. We see building the next generation of Australian talent and equipping our industry with relevant skills as essential to ensuring audiences continue to be enriched by Australian stories.

AFTRS is funded by the Federal Government to support the Australian media industry, and we value our close connection to industry, which ensures we continue to offer courses that are both industry-relevant and forward-focussed.

AFTRS consults closely with industry via our Industry Advisory Panels and we apply the learnings from our triennial industry survey to our curriculum and programs.

AFTRS works closely with industry to find great placements, internships and jobs for our students. To find out how your company can work with us, read about Internships and Placements here.
