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 culture and identity and connecting with one another. Australian stories are facing a challenging climate. We see building the next generation of Australian talent and equipping our industry with relevant skills as essential to meeting these challenges and ensure audiences continue to be enriched by Australian stories.
AFTRS is federally funded to support the Australian media industry. Targeted subsidies are provided to ensure the industry remains skilled.
