Editing is one of the most important parts of making a film. An editor’s job involves making tons of decisions in order to figure out the story you want to tell. The emotion that comes through the final film is up to the editor. One of the most important skills to have as an editor is having the ability to create a story for a target demographic. Through our 3 Month Distance Learning Certification Program in Film & Video Editing, we prepare critical and industry-responsive filmmakers.  Award-winning filmmaker, main faculty, and director of the course Gourav Ghosh (FTII) will take you through the craft of editing. He believes that making a film is not possible without editing.  Our training is focused on making the student a filmmaker, who makes films. We promote our students’ films to international film festivals and online streaming platforms. We and our students are a team committed to the core process of film-making.
The curriculum projects are constructed in such a way that it feels like a real job. We have original smart projects for students. They receive professional advice and feedback on their final films which is very much how the professional world works. You not only get hands-on instruction from industry professionals but also build your showreel while completing the course.

Your film editing career starts here!
