SAFC spotlights screen career opportunities at student expo
18 August 2023
The SAFC was pleased to showcase screen career pathways to hundreds of high school students from across South Australia at the Student Pathways and Careers Expo this week.
The SAFC represented the screen industry at the two-day event held at the Adelaide Convention Centre, highlighting careers in film, TV and video game production alongside Rising Sun Pictures, Channel 44, CDW Studios and the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE).
The SA Department for Education event enabled hundreds of students in Years 7 to 12 from various schools to learn about career pathways, education and training opportunities in a host of emerging and future industries.
SAFC CEO Kate Croser met with Minister for Education, Training and Skills Blair Boyer when he stopped by the SAFC booth as part of his visit to the expo, highlighting the wide variety of careers available in SA’s screen sector.
As well as showcasing some of the exciting film and TV productions to come out of the state’s screen industry in recent years, the SAFC booth provided information about the many highly skilled jobs that make up the sector. Students took great delight in the opportunity to pose in front of a working green screen with real props from the SA production of 2021 blockbuster feature film Mortal Kombat.
The SAFC is committed to growing the state’s skills base to accommodate the demand for crew and take advantage of opportunities for jobs and growth for South Australians. Check out the SA Screen Industry Workforce Development Strategy for more information.
