Another proud achievement for AFTRS
As graduates of its flagship radio course immerse themselves in the industry, the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) has another feather in its cap.
Its filmmaking team of the Master of Arts Screen capstone project MumLife has been selected for the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in the La Cinef section.
MumLife – the only Australian film in the competition – is a pop musical about post-natal anxiety, directed by Ruby Challenger, who says “Being at AFTRS allowed me to find a tribe of incredibly talented and hardworking filmmakers that made the process intensely gratifying. With MumLife, I hope to reach other women like me and show them that anything is possible.”
AFTRS has a proud history of its graduates being selected for Cannes, including Jane Campion, Gillian Armstrong and Phillip Noyce.
