Sydney Film School (SFS) has been ranked by Variety as one of the top film schools from around the world alongside prestigious providers American Film Institute, La Femis and Beijing Film Academy. Additionally, they are the only Australian film school ranked, sitting amongst only 10 film schools to be included outside of the US. Each year, Variety cultivates a list of the top film school programs and film school educators both in the US and abroad.

In 2021 Excelsia College is proud to be partnering with Sydney Film School to deliver Australia’s newest film degree: The Bachelor of Screen Production.

Students will create original work at SFS’s world leading facilities in Waterloo while enjoying the specialist production design spaces and well equipped classrooms at Excelsia’s Macquarie Park campus. The Bachelor of Screen Production is a practice-led degree where students develop on-set production skills ranging from cinematography, directing, editing, design, writing and production coordination in state-of-the-art facilities. This includes a world class sound stage, cinema, movement studios, training rooms, production offices, postproduction mastering suite, editing suites, animation pods with industry ready cameras and equipment.

The Bachelor of Screen Production is the only degree in NSW to offer a creative hub of specialist students from complementing degrees who can write, create, act, perform and produce all elements of film making in-house.

Screen Productions students have access and collaborate with a network of future:

  • Film composers
  • Actors
  • Set designers
  • Screenwriters
  • Creative influencers, entrepreneurs and more…

But the degree goes deeper, delivering a unique and coveted unit Philosophy for the Contemporary Filmmaker. This unit teaches students to craft, create, and explore rich and meaningful filmmaking from a wealth of philosophical thematic storytelling. Students will develop their existing passion for film into a prospective career and acquire a skillset required for many creative roles. Could the course produce the next Terrace Malik, Bong Joon-ho or Martin Scorsese? Time will tell, but it is positioned finely to do so.
