Mission & Strategy

Swinburne Film and Television is widely acknowledged as a high profile, progressive and innovative program that attracts high achieving students, both nationally and internationally. We deliver a broad and coherent body of knowledge with in-depth knowledge of the underlying principles and concepts in Film and Television theory and production. Our courses provide students with extended breadth and depth in creative skills and technical knowledge to make high quality cinema, television and digital media productions. Students collaborate to make films through theory and research, screenwriting, direction, producing and high-end craft skills including cinematography and sound design. Creative outcomes include short narrative film, documentary, 2D and 3D animation, music video and television commercials. Students work to industry standards across all areas of production, and are encouraged to take advanced production specialisations to enhance their career opportunities. Additional initiatives to bolster students’ filmmaking experiences include Industry Based Learning/placements, international study tours and student exchange.
