Nine Australian production companies and broadcasters are this year taking part in the 2022 AFTRS Graduate Program.
The highly competitive AFTRS Graduate Program offers AFTRS graduates thirteen-week paid industry internships and creates employment pathways for graduates from the Bachelor of Arts Screen: Production.
