Nurturing the next generation of filmmakers, animators and game designers

The Griffith Film School prepares the next generation of filmmakers, animators and game designers for creative and exciting careers in the global industry. Our Experience Week is tailored to current Year 11 and 12 students considering future tertiary study at the Griffith Film School. During the weeklong program, participants will choose a study area and be taught by our highly skilled, industry connected teaching team and gain theoretical and practical skills. Participants will also complete a piece of work for their creative portfolio and get a feel for what it’s like to study at the Griffith Film School.
