The deadline to apply for an AFI film school in Australia is Friday, May 29.
We can’t wait to see what film deaf students are working on.
AFI filmschool graduates are now eligible to work in Australia.
This means that for the first time, you’ll be able to work on your own film.
The new criteria for filmschools are: a minimum of one film (the same level as film school applicants), at least three years of relevant work experience, and at least a bachelor’s degree in film.
Aussie film school applicants have until February 25 to apply, while those in the US are waiting until April 20.
The AFI is a non-profit organisation set up by the National Film and Television School of Canada.
It’s been around since the 1970s, and it’s still around to offer a wide range of programmes to students.
According to the organisation’s website, the aim of the organisation is to: strengthen the capacity of the Australian film and television industry by increasing the number of people with access to the medium of film, to promote a more culturally diverse and globally-engaged cinema industry, and to improve education and employment opportunities in film and media.
In the past, there has been a significant rise in the number and quality of film and digital film students, especially among young people.
We’re thrilled to see this increase in students, and are hopeful that the AFI will continue to provide a range of programs for students in the future.
