Forecast to grow from 20% in 2020, film is the largest player in the entertainment sector.

The evolution of technology and the trend towards visual content means that filmmakers are no longer solely focused on feature films or the Trop fest title.

Video has become increasingly important in a corporate setting - from advertising and internal communications to PR and event coverage. Brands and media outlets are increasingly using video to convey their message.

Viral videos are attracting larger audiences than commercial TV shows and magazines are expanding their horizons with digital content distributed through smartphone apps. This means that within a booming industry, the career opportunities are extraordinary.

Better yet, the broad focus of the Bachelor of Interactive Media arms graduates with the skills to thrive across a broad range of career paths - from a director to a producer, scriptwriter to post-production manager.
