Some schools can get bad reputations. Take the school from Dangerous Minds, it's unlikely to be receiving an influx of applications right now. Or St Trinian's - also not a place you'd recommend to prospective learners. However if it's a film school that you're after, and one that will give you the best opportunity to move into working in the business, look no further than the International Film School Sydney.

This film school aims to give students the best step-up into the world of film, by allowing them the freedom to discover their cinematic strengths and skills. It also encourages new filmmakers to develop their artistic expression.

There are many reasons why the International Film School Sydney [IFSS] stands out; firstly, they allow all students to maintain copyright over all content produced at the school. They also ensure that students are given the opportunity to participate in national and international film festivals. But most importantly, as a student you will be able to write and direct up to 8 of your own productions, while simultaneously working in many creative roles on your classmates' films.

The course offered; a 2 year Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media, ensures that students have the best access to industry advice and knowledge to better their chances at gaining employment in the industry after the course has been completed.

Giving students access to state of the art equipment for all projects, IFSS has no entry requirements or pre-requisite experience or training, they only ask that students be 18 at the time of enrolment.

Don't believe us? Check out the latest films by students of the school on Wednesday 29th July at the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington. It's free, so simply head to their website for more info and to RSVP.
