Excelsia College expands strategic partnership with Sydney Film School

We are proud to announce that Excelsia College has partnered with Sydney Film School, one of the world’s top 50 film schools.

The strategic partnership will provide students from both schools with broader opportunities, helping to enrich their learning experience, and enhance their employability prospects.

Excelsia and Sydney Film School will work together to create opportunities for collaborative study and innovation projects, through shared areas of strength that include improved access to facilities and equipment, course development and industry networking. The partnership builds on past successful joint working and marks a step change in collaboration. Many exciting projects are in the works, including introducing new combined performing arts and screen production degrees in the near future.

Sydney Film School was founded 14 years ago to teach the essential filmmaking ‘tools’ necessary for a successful career in the global film industry. They offer an intense learning experience with graduates learning all aspects of the filmmaking process and leaving SFS with up to 20 film credits. Now located alongside Sydney Actors School, at Waterloo Studios they are situated in a purpose-built facility with world-class equipment available to students.

The Executive Chair of Sydney Film School – Simon Hunter - will be running a workshop on our Open Day on Saturday 31 August, where you can learn the tricks of the trade and explore a range of filmmaking specialisms. You can register for the workshop here.

We hope this partnership will enhance student learning, work experience opportunities and collaborative research and we look forward to working closely with the Sydney Film School team.
