Center for Research in Art of Film and television

Description

Center for Research in Art of Film and Television (CRAFT) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization registered as a public charitable trust to impart quality education in the field of film, television, and other media arts through short and long-term courses with specialization in various disciplines.

While many mass communication courses exist at the bachelor's and master's level in Delhi, why has CRAFT decided to introduce one-year, full-time postgraduate advance diplomas?

Today, we are living in an era of microspecialization. Besides FTII, not many institutes offer specialization courses in media arts. Moreover, the usual intake of aspirants in so-called mass communication courses is 45-60, where imparting practical training is not viable. Most of these courses run on a theoretical syllabus devised by academic council members who are not industry practitioners.

Therefore, we have realized the need for specialization courses run by current industry practitioners.

CRAFT is a quality education venture rather than a business. We have the desire and the required contacts within the film industry to invite professionals to conduct workshops/seminars. CRAFT operates on a corporate pattern rather than on a bureaucratic system.

In view of the above, the courses offered at CRAFT are distinguished by the following unique features:

* Specialized courses as opposed to mass communication
* Low teacher-student ratio, with10 seats per course
* Guest f 1. Public Relations, Advertising & Event Management.
2. Film direction.
3. Cinematography.
4. Creative Writing.
5. Television journalism.
6. Radio Jockey
7. News reading and news anchoring/ reporting
