AFTT’s Holt Street campus is located in the heart of inner city Sydney, in Surry Hills. Here, we not only believe in mastering the conventions of creative storytelling, cinematic visualisation and production, we love technology! As an advanced-design campus we offer all the equipment and facilities you would expect of a leading creative arts Academy. 

Film and Television Production

The campus includes five theatres/ screening spaces with HD projection and surround sound, computer labs, production labs, a RED edit suite, production offices and rehearsal spaces.

Theatre and Stage Production

With five professional studio spaces featuring TV/ DVD/ iPod facilities, pianos and Tarkett flooring, a soundproof vocal/ singing space, a fully equipped sound studio, soundproof rehearsal spaces, a diverse range of costumes and props and our state-of-the-art auditorium, we’ve got every eventuality covered. 

Our courses are delivered by a team of leading theatre and screen practitioners, who train actors in companies such as Bell, Belvoir and the Sydney Theatre Co. The experience and knowledge of AFTT teaching staff is further enhanced by the integration of effective and dynamic acting techniques, including The Eric Morris System and Meyerhold BioMechanics.

Student integration is vital in a cross-disciplinary learning institution – it has been proven that if you can immerse yourself into every aspect of an industry, you develop a broader-focused and more adaptable knowledge. AFTT is Australia’s most immersive creative arts institution, where collaboration and diverse engagement is key, enabling students to expand the limits of their own imaginations.

We have established a system that demands collaboration: our filmmaking and cinematography students make four budgeted student films per course; for that they, are going to need actors. Our acting students are required to perform in multiple productions; and for that, they’ll need a producer, lighting, props and a manager, while our screenwriters cry out for cinematic visionaries to interpret their vision. The collaborative opportunities are unlimited.
