Course Spotlight – Master’s in Filmmaking

 Do any of these options describe YOU?

  1. You graduated from a bachelor’s degree in media and now want to keep studying in the same field.
  2. You graduated from a non-media degree, which you didn’t really enjoy, and now want to follow your real interests.
  3. You graduated a few years back and have been working. Now, you are in a position to make a change in your career.
  4.  You have been working as an assistant director or in production, but feel that you haven’t had the opportunities to explore your own storytelling.

If your answer to any of these is ‘yes!’, then you should take a good look at our brand-new master’s program. It could be exactly what you are looking for!


India’s first Master’s in filmmaking

For decades the Indian film industry has tried to move its education standards away from certificates and diplomas. Why? Because the rest of the world (and most other industry sectors in India) view a master’s degree as the gold standard of post-graduate education.

After working tirelessly with the state government, and with representatives of many central and state universities for the last 18 months, AISFM is very happy to announce that the school is now able to offer India’s very first masters programs in Film + Media.


Real, full-time degrees!

Importantly, these are not distance or correspondence courses. These are real, full-time, government recognized degrees, provided by Jawaharlal Nehru AFA University. JNAFAU is one of India’s top fine arts universities, so this is a perfect match for our degree programs!


Choose your specialisation

So what will you learn?

I’ll keep it brief as the full curriculum is up on the website here

The first semester is common for all students and takes you through each aspect of filmmaking. Next you choose a specialization from Directing, Screenwriting, Producing, Cinematography or Sound and Editing. The specialized training runs for three semesters, working on films, TV, ads and documentaries. After graduating, you enter our placement cell and our alumni network, to get started with your first position in the industry.

Paper Forms

Exciting news for all the aspiring filmmakers who have been waiting for us to launch admissions for the first-ever intake of our degree, masters and MBA courses:

You can now pre-register for admissions!

What does this mean?We are almost ready to announce our Indian university accreditation details, so that we can formally start the admissions process. However – many applicants have been asking if they can begin their applications in advance.

The answer is YES!

We are now allowing applicants for the July/August 2012 intake to collect the application form and submit the completed form to our admissions office. We will process your application and, as soon as our accreditation is in place, we will be able to start announcing the successful applicants.

How to begin the admissions process:

  1. Email or call 040-4914-1234 to request the form
  2. Prepare your application and submit it via courier, or hand deliver it to the admissions office
  3. Your application will be processed and, if you are shortlisted, you will be contacted to arrange your personal interviews
  4. Once our accreditation is in place, we will be able to begin issuing offer letters for each course

Simple and straightforward. And a final hint: pre-registering means that your application can be reviewed before the rush of main and late round applications arrive, so we should be able to process your application faster.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
