Film Fiji Audio Visual Lab (FFAVLab)
We help imagine and develop the future of the Audio-Visual Industry in Fiji.
The FFAVLab develops and implements new Audio-Visual projects in collaboration with other stakeholders of Fiji’s public and private sector with the core objective of bringing significant economic value to the future of Fiji’s economy.
What is the Media Learning School Program?
Film Fiji, through the FFAVLab’s Media Learning School Program (MLSP), seeks to provide accessible media arts resources to Fijian primary, secondary, tertiary, and Vocational teachers and students. This initiative is supported by the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts (MEHA) and the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
Courses provided through the MLSP are aimed at building core creativity and storytelling capabilities that will be required for jobs of the future. The free-to-access online resources are practical, accessible and industry inductor educational experiences that can be used across the Fijian school curriculum including vocational and mature student programs.
Courses available include Introduction to Documentary, Filmmaking, Screenwriting, Advanced Documentary, Advanced Podcasting and Stop motion. These 6 courses play a fundamental role in gaining exposure to fundamental Audio-Visual skills.
