Established in response to various needs of government, industry, and society, and in concordance with the principles laid out by XJTLU’s Syntegrative Education initiative, the Academy of Film and Creative Technology is re-thinking the role that universities play in the revitalisation of cultural and creative industries.
The AFCT will be a unique multi-location educational model, providing cross-site opportunities for students and staff. Building on the prime values of the University, the Academy brings together a creative core of media and communications technology, creating an international cultural ecosystem driven by knowledge generation to advance industry and society into the future.
The Academy of Film and Creative Technology is multi-locational with four schools. Two are formed from existing XJTLU schools: the School of Film and TV Arts, and the School of Cultural Technology from the XJTLU Entrepreneur College (Taicang). Each will retain their current name and will form part of the first phase of development.
The second phase contains the development of the XJTLU-Enlight Film School in partnership with Enlight Media, to be established in Yangzhou. The third phase of development is planned for the Greater Bay Area and will explore cultural management and entertainment media through the creation of an Institute of Culture and Creativity (ICC).
