Diploma In Film Editing - 6 Month Course

Film editing is one of the most important departments of film-making. A film is a combination of several art forms, such as music, acting, direction, screenplay, picturization etc. All these art forms are combined together through editing. And that is how, a film is made, on the editing table.

A film is made up of emotions. The viewer of a film experiences a range of emotions to an imaginary world on screen.
