Film and Television studies

A new era of film and television has arrived thanks to accessible technology and streaming services. It’s now up to filmmakers to adjust, explore new mediums and tell stories differently. That’s what you’ll explore in film school at Swinburne.

Whether you choose film studies to master production and editing, create documentaries, become a screenwriter or produce special effects, you’ll learn how to make a movie by combining imagination with practical skills — and make your story come to life.
