Bachelor of Film and Screen Media Production (Honours)

This Honours program provides a fourth year of study for students who have completed the Bachelor of Film and Screen Media Production (1284), or an equivalent undergraduate program. It is a full-time or part-time program that comprises a significant independent film or screen media research project to be completed under formal supervision. This project is complemented by associated methodological and theoretical courses and an appropriate elective course.

As well as the opportunity for career and skill advancement, this Honours program creates a pathway for film students to move into research and higher degree studies – Master of Philosophy (5001), Master of Screen Production – ‘Advanced’ major (5736) or Doctor of Philosophy (6001).

Industry focus

As a film and screen media student, you can take advantage of our diverse workshop, seminar, and master class programs delivered by local and international experts including Multi-Oscar award-winning producer, Lord David Puttnam CBE and renowned Australian filmmaker Bruce Beresford.

Griffith Film School is an active member of, and has a strong reputation within the World Film School Association (CILECT), a group of 160 International Film Schools. We were a leader in the establishment, management and growth of ASPERA and maintain ongoing engagement with ATOM.

Griffith Film School has ongoing international partnerships with the APSA, NEP Group, World Congress of Science and Factual Producers, Gobelins L’école De L’image and the BFA.

These industry links and international connections mean you’ll have the opportunity to practise the art of filmmaking under the guidance of the best in the world. You’ll be prepared to create industry-standard work and make critical contacts that you’ll draw upon at university and beyond.

Opportunities and experiences

Submit your work to film festivals or competitions and take your talents further through in-field study, as well as domestic and international study tours.

Griffith Film School students can engage with different cultures and disciplines through elective study tours. Griffith University creative arts students and alumni (including students and alumni from the Queensland College of Art and Queensland Conservatorium) annually descend on outback Queensland to hone their craft as part of the Vision Splendid Film Festival in Winton. Griffith Film School partners with the festival to run the Vision Splendid Film Institute—a two-week program of film projects, workshops and masterclasses. You’ll gain practical experience, mentoring opportunities, and build relationships with locals and Koa elders in a truly unique setting.
