About this course

The BFA in Digital Filmmaking offers a comprehensive education in the theory and practice of film production. The curriculum provides a complete foundation in existing cinematic and production techniques as well as recognising that the future of film lies in its relationship with new technologies. New media is changing how we tell stories, how we record the world around us and how we present these narratives to the world.

To enable students to gain first-hand industry experience, ADM encourages all students to undertake internship. Internships last ten weeks and students will be supervised by the professors and relevant industry practitioners.?
