Sydney Film School is fortunate to be infused with passionate and committed people who all have experience either within the film industry and their respective disciplines. We believe the best way to learn is to learn from mentors who have been successful in their chosen disciplines.

Our mentors are selected for their practical experience in the film industry as well as their ability to teach and communicate the concepts that offer our students professional perspectives on how to reach their goals. They are devoted to assisting our students through their assignments and production processes and to ensuring that each one feels part of the community that is Sydney Film School.
