Staff on the course

AUB has been producing talent for the film industry for years. Our lecturers know the industry inside out – many of them are working on high profile feature films whilst also teaching on the course.

We make sure that you’re as prepared for the industry as possible by creating an industry on campus. Along with an impressive set of skills, you’ll leave AUB with a ready-made network of professionals that you worked with while studying.

We’ve also got a network of artists at your disposal. They can use you and you can use them – at AUB and in your career.
