I am hard pressed to find another course in Melbourne that offers such in depth one to one developmental arcs for aspiring film and television makers. This is the course to beat!
An amazing institution which provides actual industry experience and a recognised qualification in this technical and creative field.
After I abandoned my degree and enrolled at Footscray City Films I Instantly felt that I’d found found my place
I have never been happier, I learnt more in one class here than in my entire year 12 media class. The workshops have been amazing!
I have finally found myself enjoying school! I haven’t enjoyed school in years and this course is offering me everything that I love doing.
The course is so enjoyable as it is hands on, fast paced and gets you straight into it. I'm so excited to finally work with advanced equipment and make quality films.
The place is just great. This course opens you up so much more in terms of both knowledge and expertise, and the people are fantastic to work with.
The past few weeks have been amazing! The classes are so informative and fun, and although its only been a couple of weeks I feel that I have already learnt more here than I had during my entire high school experience.
I’ve had a great time finally having the opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded people, who can share the same love for film. I found the lecture from Ross Dimsey invaluable, really enjoying the opportunity to have his insight into the real working industry at the top of the chain.

For over thirty years Footscray City Films has helped hundreds of students achieve their artistic goals of becoming filmmakers and gaining work in the Australian Film Industry.
The great strength of the Film School lies in its ability to nurture and encourage strong relationships with students, the film and television industry and the community.
An essential focus of the Footscray ethos is the discovery of one’s self and what we share with others. Film-making is such a collaborative process that it encourages individuals to be supportive. It awakens a sense of community in all of us.
