Col Rajyavardhan Rathore, MoS (I&B) visits FTII Campus
Taking quality cinema literacy outside the campuses to common people of the country is our aim: Col Rathore
Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting, Col Rajyavardhan Rathore has said that it was important that quality and affordable cinema education be made accessible to all those who are interested in knowing more about the medium. He said that the short courses being started by FTII are the way forward to take quality cinema literacy outside the campus to commoners. The Minister said this during his visit to FTII campus earlier today.
Interacting with the students of the 42nd Film Appreciation Course, Col Rathore said that when someone works for a passion, the work which results is not ordinary but exemplary. He said that he hoped that the course will enable students know finer nuances of appreciating a film. Earlier, the MoS visited Prabhat Studio on the campus, the oldest studio which is still in use. The Minister also visited FTII's sound studio which is one of the world's only Dolby Digital training studio.
