55 FTII films screened at IFFI 2012

The 43rd edition of IFFI is celebrating 50 years of Film and Television Institute of India, Pune (FTII) by screening ‘student diploma films’. A package of 55 films curated by GraFTII, the alumnus association of the FTII represents the contributions of FTII graduates of the past decade. Speaking to the media persons Sanjeev Sood, Documentary film maker and alumnus of FTII said that little-known, fresh faces and films rather than the much awarded and feted ones have been selected for the package. He said that FTII has set a certain benchmark as far as film making is concerned; hence it is a great opportunity for the young film students who have come from across the country to watch and learn from these films.

Megh Pant, Actor and alumnus of FTII said that IFFI is a great platform for young film students, since they get to watch good movies as well as interact with great filmmakers. This will help them to properly structure their ideas and projects. Answering a query Megh Pant said that now FTII graduates are no longer compelled to remain in Mumbai for the sake of their art. Many FTII graduates have gone regional and made a mark in the respective regional film industry, he added.
