The Australian Film School (ABC) has launched a new advertising campaign highlighting the film industry’s best and brightest.
The campaign, which includes a range of film-related products including films and DVDs, is aimed at encouraging film students to pursue careers in the industry.ABC advertising director of education and research, Dr Peter Lumsden, said the campaign highlighted the importance of film school graduates to the Australian film industry and to the nation.
“The most important role a film student can play in the economy is in a film production,” he said.
“We’re not just talking about making a film, but we’re also talking about finding jobs in film.”
So if you’re going to be doing film school and you’re a young, fresh-faced film student looking to get into film school then you need to do your bit to help make the industry that much stronger.
“The campaign will run for six weeks and features a range or film-focused products, including films, DVDs and more.”
It’s really important to remember that in order to become a film director you need film and you need a film and the more education you have, the more likely you are to get jobs.””
So we’ve put together a range to give students the best education, including books, film school curriculum, and of course a film course that is based around what film students need to know and can prepare them to get a job in the film sector.”

“The film industry employs around 690,000 Australians, including over 150,000 in the arts and entertainment sector.
According to the ABC, there are around 1.2 million people aged 16 and over working in the Australian entertainment industry.
Dr Lumslaw said the industry needed to be supported and diversified.”
There are about 100,000 people in the [Australian] film industry in a sector that’s growing at a much faster rate than anywhere else in the world,” he noted.”
And we need to have a much wider variety of jobs to support that growth.”ABC advertising producer, Sarah O’Shea, said it was important to encourage film students not just to pursue film but to get involved in the community and take part in community activities.”
Students at film schools will have access to all the benefits of the industry, including a range at a very competitive cost,” she said.
The ABC also teamed up with the National Film School Association (NFSA) to create the poster campaign.
The NFSA’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Pritchard, said film school students should be encouraged to be involved in their community and help build community.”
Our students are an important part of our society, but they are also a key part of the workforce, and we want to encourage our students to engage in their local community, work on their local issues and have a positive impact on their community,” he told ABC Radio Adelaide.”
A film student’s ability to engage with their community is an invaluable asset to the industry.
