Film and Screen Studies

Watch the report on aspiring Monash University filmmakers having their work showcased on Federation Square's big screen.

Welcome to one of the largest stand-alone Screen Studies programs in Australia. Our aim is to nurture exciting intellectual and creative endeavours while equipping students with a range of tools for making, shaping and understanding our contemporary screen-based world.

The best place to study film and television in Australia

Screen industries, technologies and cultures are changing faster than ever before. With Monash Film and Screen Studies, learn how to navigate this rapidly transforming environment. What factors control the screen media we consume? How is our understanding of social movements shaped by what we see on screens? How is technology making it easier for non-professionals to produce and distribute screen content?

We take a variety of approaches to moving-image media, drawing on film and television history, theory and practice. Engaging with screens big and small, mobile and expanded, students think through current industry shifts and disruption while building foundational skills in screen representation and reception, style and storytelling, genre, aesthetics and form.
