AFTRS Co-Launches LA base

Along with Screen NSW, Screen Queensland and Film Victoria, the Australian Film and Television School has created a base in Los Angeles for Australian creatives seeking connection with the US film industry. ‘Charlie's' is located on the Raleigh Studios lot and provides a dedicated ‘networking space' for Australian film makers. Speaking to AustraliansInFilm (AIF) AFTRS CEO Neil Peplow, said that the space would ‘provide Alumni with a home to work from in LA. By being part of the Australian community in the US they will gain valuable support, insight, and much needed friendly faces as they pitch their wares to the largest entertainment industry in the world'. AFTRS was also the only Australian institution to be included in the Hollywood Reporter list of best film schools outside the US.
