Learn filmmaking

from filmmakers, by making films

MAPS Open Night

5pm – 7pm on Wednesday 27 October 2021
AIE Adelaide – 32 Grenfell St, Adelaide

MAPS and AIE combine to run Film courses from 2022!

Learn film making in a practical, hands on, industry led intensive way that will prepare you for emerging jobs in the global film industry.


At MAPS Film School industry practitioners trained in vocational education instruct students in the exciting practice of filmmaking. Our philosophy is simple – learn by doing. Each year around 50 short films are produced. Students learn the practical aspects of filmmaking as well as the art of collaboration from making films.

We replicate the real world industry and operate like a production house. Students generate original ideas, develop and pitch their projects, crews are formed and projects are realised from pre-production to shoot to post-production. It’s a fun, vibrant, hard working environment where students can pursue projects they are inspired by. We make short dramas and comedies, short documentaries, music videos and experimental art pieces. Our films are screened publicly at the end of each year.

At MAPS we have trained over 1000 alumni and produced over 1500 films in the past 35 years. MAPS films regularly win awards and screen at festivals and online. MAPS graduates work locally, interstate and internationally in all areas of filmmaking. They can be found behind the camera, directing, producing, recording sound, in the edit suite, writing scripts and more. We are highly regarded by the industry for preparing students artistically and technically for work.

We teach camera operations, audio, producing, editing, writing and directing.
