The courses designed under the supervision of competent faculty, help an the students to explore cultural sensibilities, initiate intellectual thinking and generate new ideas in the contemporary theoretical discourse.

The process of production involves grammar of film, originality and style, interlaced with a creative interaction of ideas, concepts and techniques. The medium of practice is digital video technologies, due to economical accessibility and ease of handling in the teaching processes.

An upgraded and latest equipment including lights, sound equipment, cameras, lenses and editing suits are also installed in the department. We are also working towards the expansion of department’s infrastructure and other facilities.

As a part of the ‘University Partnership Program’ by the US State Department, the Department of Film & TV has become a partner with South Asia Institute (SAI), in collaboration with Department of Radio-Television- Film (RTF) in the Moody College of Communication at University of Texas at Austin. Recently, a batch of ten film students was accepted in a student exchange program at UT-Austin to study for a semester along with one faculty member. More faculty members in this partnership will be visiting the United States in the upcoming months.

Another feather has been added to the cap, as a German student Daniel Asadi Faezi selected NCA and successfully completed his one year in the Department of Film and Television under the student exchange of DAAD Scholarship. The department is presently offering a 4-year Bachelor Degree program in Film & Television. However, we will be soon launching the Masters program, for an advanced understanding about the discipline.

The Department is promoting the community outreach for general public and industry professionals. For which, the department has started various diplomas and certificates mainly focusing on courses like; Digital Film Production: Fiction (Short Film, Music Video, TVC), Digital Film Production: Non-Fiction (News Packages, Documentary), Non-Linear Editing & Acting.

We also encourage our students to gain industry experience, especially in their summer break. For that, we recommend them for internships in various Film & TV studios, production houses and other relevant organizations. The department encourages positive partnerships with international universities to provide students an international experience and exposure to the global film industry.
