Some learned to script or direct films on their own. Some learned to edit. Others learned the professional way to handle post production aspects. Said Geetika Tondon, Vice President Academics, AISFM.

    “It had taken time, patience and often, pain. But as in all graduations, the joyful pride of accomplishment outweighed the memory of the grueling moments in school” a young student, Pradhan Thandra said.

How do I make it?  I am confident the interaction they had with teachers and many visiting industry stalwarts have given them immense confidence to succeed.
