Bachelor of Film and Television

What can you do with your degree?

The rapid expansion of streaming subscription entertainment and media platforms has driven strong demand for professionals in all industries who have the ability to craft stories for the screen.

Closer to home, the film industry is booming. Offering diverse location opportunities, an accessible environment, and strategic film attraction initiatives by federal, state, and local governments, Hollywood blockbusters and international film productions are flooding into the Gold Coast. $71 million has been earmarked to be injected into Queensland’s film industry. With these productions come job opportunities and global connection.

Blockbusters lured to the sunshine state include Thor: Ragnarok, Aquaman, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Godzilla vs. Kong, Love and Monsters, Escape from Spiderhead, Thirteen Lives, Ticket To Paradise and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic with new blockbusters like Joe Exotic and Ticket to Paradise as well as Netflix’s Jessica Watson biobic set to call Queensland home.



Producers are the core of a film; they will essentially oversee the entirety of the film production. As a producer, you can work for a film company, or work independently. Their primary responsibility is to ensure that the project runs smoothly, is completed in a timely manner, and that it is on track to being on-budget.


A screenwriter is responsible for creating screenplays/scripts for movies, television, commercials. They collaborate with the producers, directors, and possibly actors to brainstorm ideas, to draft a copy before finalising the final script.


A film editor is responsible for taking raw and un-cut footage and editing it with things such as sound effects, special effects, and graphics, to produce a final film or media product. A film editor collaborates with the producer and director of the project to get a clear comprehension of their vision. You will be required to adhere by the timeline established by producers and directors to have the final product completed by its deadline. The film or video medium will need to go through a series of revisions until it is complete.
