AFTRS is Always Searching for the Next Generation of Screen Storytellers

Filed : Lifelong Learning, Local and industry news .

If you’re wondering whether to take up a Masters in Screen Studies, an AFTRS Taster session could be just the thing to whet your appetite.

Returning to study can often be a daunting task, but luckily the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) is now offering Taster sessions that give future storytellers an opportunity to experience what AFTRS is all about.

These sessions will take place in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in July and August, and during the School’s Annual Open Day and Postgraduate Information Evening in Sydney in August.

The Taster sessions will be held for AFTRS The Master of Arts Screen, which includes 10 disciplines: Animation, Cinematography, Directing, Documentary, Editing, Music, Producing, Production Design, Screenwriting and Sound, and the Master of Arts Screen Business & Leadership.

Nell Greenwood, Head of Programs at AFTRS, says the national film school  is keen to draw people from all over Australia.

“We’re trying to find the most talented people out there and bring them into the Masters programs so they develop the skills and the capacity to be the next generation of great Australian storytellers… One of the things we emphasise at AFTRS is for our students to discover and mine their artistic point of view, or creative point of view.” Nell Greenwood said.

Learning how to tell authentic stories is at the centre of what the Masters programs at AFTRS are all about.
