Mission & Strategy

Griffith Film School (GFS) is the largest dedicated school of its kind in Australia and part of the Queensland College of Art, an internationally recognized school established in 1881. Situated in a historic building, GFS combines a context of tradition with innovative programs, contemporary technology and advanced educational practice. Griffith film School’s mission is to prepare the next generation of filmmakers, animators and games designers for creative and sustainable careers in the screen-based industries.

Our students are provided with opportunities to engage and learn from distinguished experts, eminent industry practitioners, academics and visiting professors, the international practice of film, television and digital screen media creation. Our educational prospectus includes undergraduate programs in Film and Screen Media Production, Animation and Games Design with postgraduate studies in each of these disciplines from Maters to Doctoral levels.

Griffith Film School fosters engagement with a variety of International partners, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. We believe that these links provide our students with an opportunity to learn their craft in an environment of cultural diversity, international practice and world markets – to develop sound ethical principles of professional practice, while learning the skills that will allow them to pursue careers across the globe.

The School is situated in Brisbane’s dynamic South Bank Precinct – the creative and cultural heart of the City. Among our neighbors are Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art, and Conservatorium, and the Queensland Art Gallery, Museum, Performing Arts Complex and State Library. This enlightening density and diversity of experiences provides students with a rich environment in which to study, learn and grow.

Locally, Queensland hosts a dynamic film, television, animation and games industry with wide-ranging international engagement and association. This industry nurtures a considerable talent pool creating opportunities for GFS students to receive on-site mentorship and future employment opportunities.

At the heart of Griffith film school’s purpose is to provide an environment where its students can acquire the skills, knowledge and ethical frameworks to pursue sustainable careers both within and outside Australia, while contributing to the commerce, culture and progress of many communities, regions and nations.
