Film, Television and New Media

Film, Television and New Media at Flinders provides an opportunity for students to be creatively challenged as they analyse and create moving image media. Students experience a range of genres, techniques and experiences that enable them to create meaning and purpose through storytelling.

Film, Television and New Media is offered in Years 8 -12, with the senior years contributing to the ATAR score.

In the senior years, students creatively apply film, television and new media key concepts to individually and collaboratively make moving-image media products, and investigate and respond to moving-image media content and production contexts.

There is a focus on developing a respect for diverse perspectives and a critical awareness of the expressive, functional and creative potential of moving-image media in a diverse range of global contexts. Importantly, students develop knowledge and skills in creative thinking, communication, collaboration, planning, critical analysis, and digital and ethical citizenship – the vital 21st century skills of the 6C’s.
