BUFTA Student Academy


For two weeks in 2017, BUFTA will visit Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth across for the annual BUFTA Academy.

The BUFTA Academy is an opportunity for high school students to meet and talk to one of our teaching staff and industry experts directly about film and television and to prepare them to enter BUFTA.

Join the BUFTA Team for a 'Fundamentals of Filmmaking Workshop'! Students will have the choice between two workshops at our local BUFTA Student Academy, one in screenwriting and one in cinematography and lighting. These workshops are offered to students with all levels of filmmaking experience; from beginners to advanced. Spots are limited, so be sure to register your attendance here!



"I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity of have a [BUFTA representative] teach my class. What he said and demonstrated 'ticked so many boxes' in regard to what the students are doing for assessment. All the students I've have the opportunity to speak to said that they certainly got a lot out of it. I certainly did. I will do my best to encourage BUFTA entries from my students."

– Timothy Reuther, Drama l Film & New Media Teacher l Harristown State High School


"The feedback I have received from my students following the BUFTA Roadshow has been every positive. Thank you again. I look forward to the opportunity to attend another BUFTA Roadshow and Experience Day at Bond in the future."
