The AFDA Graduation Festival is held annually in the month of November. This festival showcases 3rd year, 4th year and master's film and television graduation productions. The festival is a platform to promote the young professionals whom will soon enter into the film and television industry.

Students conceptualize and produce this graduation film by making use of their newly discovered artistic expression but creating a film that is commercially viable. At the festival a panel of industry professionals assess the film and opportunity is given for an audience response. The festival sees many industry professionals, alumni and general public join us whilst we celebrate the exhibition and promotion of our young film makers and their films.
