Your career in film and broadcasting

People who work in film and broadcasting create performances, products and programs that help us understand ourselves and each other. Through our television sets and radios, at the movie theatre or tuning into a podcast, we connect with other lives, cultures, places and times. However, we don't make these connections alone. Millions of other people are often watching the same television shows and hearing the same music as we are. If you have a career in film and broadcasting, you'll be part of a powerful force in today's world, linking people through shared experiences.
