Admissions Process


The GeniusQuestTM Film Academy admissions process for full time programs has been designed to enable us to select students who have a reasonable chance at successfully completing their course. This is normally judged by their achievements and their potential.

There is a four-stage selection process:

  1. Pre-Application
  2. Application
  3. Selection
  4. Offer and Acceptance


This is the initial contact between potential students and The GeniusQuestTM Film Academy and usually starts when you request information via our Live Chat or the Request Information button above.  Once your request is received we will contact you directly to explain more details about your program of interest and answer all your questions.


We are looking for students who have a passion for film. For this reason we require all applicants to the full time programs to submit a short, autobiographical video, two minutes in length, on one or more of these themes:  My Life, My Family, My Life, My City.  You must be in your video.  We want to see and hear about you, your family and friends, your home, your interests, passions and aspirations, and anything else that you would like to show us in a creative way. Your video may be filmed on a smartphone and edited using iMovie or a similar app. You can see an example of what we are looking for on our Video Application page.

Remember:  We will be evaluating your video for your passion for filmmaking, not your current skill level.  We are not expecting you to create a video to the level of our sample but we are looking to see your creativity.

  • Application Form
  • Application Video
  • Evidence of Education Attainments, Professional Qualifications and or Work Experience as applicable
