The School of Film and Television was established by the Academy in September 1996. The School aims to be a professional centre of excellence to reflect upon, educate and influence existing practices in the international, local and regional screen production industries. The School currently offers a four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) degree programme in Film and Television and a Master’s of Fine Arts degree programme in Cinema Production which can be completed in two years (full-time) or 3-4 years (part-time). The programmes are designed to develop high level film and television, and cinematic skills at the technical and craft level, as well as to nurture and encourage creative and artistic development. In particular, the School aims to train students to create as a team. Film and television is about teamwork. The director is one part of the team, the producer, sound recordist, sound designer, editor, screenwriter, cinematographer and production designer sum up all the parts. Each team member makes their personal creative and technical contribution.
