Reference Materials

Sydney Film School houses a resource and reference library which includes an extensive collection of local and international audio visual materials, industry journals and reference books.

Production budget allocation


As well as the above equipment, students are able to use their production budgets (provided) to rent gear from various Sydney-based equipment rental houses and businesses with which we have arrangements for discounts.

SFS fosters positive relationships with many rental houses, including , Lemac Film and DigitalPanavision Asia and The Front.

Budgets allocated to projects can also pay for the hire of other specialised equipment as required (ie car mount kits, underwater camera housing, cranes, etc).
