Vision and Mission of IIFC
Commitment to make change makers
Film as a mass-entertainment industry has as its core creative impulse, cine-technological expertise, commercial acumen, culture sensitivity, and social responsibility. Filmmaking is, thus, a unique industrial production of entertainment with people as focal point and end beneficiaries.
Our Institute recognises that filmmaking is essentially a people-process and has designed this Course as a harmonious blend of the above-said core aspects of cinema.
The founders believe in the powerful impact when Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are not mere words but actionable tenets. To that end, the school aims to enrol the students hailing from extremely underserved and marginalised communities in the 40 districts of Tamil Nadu. With this approach to Filmmaking, the Institute is committed to identify raw and original talents primarily across the districts of Thamizh Nadu, and to provide a conducive ambience to nurture and refine their cine-tech skills, emerging eventually as ‘serious entertainers’ technically, creatively, ethically empowered to produce wholesome and
healthy, commercially viable entertainment.
Those with aptitude, ambition, dreams and the right attitude will then be provided intensive coaching in film, culture and the Arts. A blend of multiple disciplines, the course willimmerse them in deep study of Politics, History, Sociology, Culture and Film Studies topower their dreams to reality.
The uniqueness of pedagogy coupled with the concept of a fully grant based world class educational environment ensures that these students will gain from the finest minds in the disciplines mentioned but without burdening the finances of their families. The faculty are drawn from Communication, Film Studies, Sociology, Literature, Psychology, PoliticalScience, History, Culture Studies, Visual Arts, Performing arts and practising professionals from the Film Industry
The objective is to fuel their dreams and give wind to their wings so they may soar in the creative arts and create a generation of young creators in Tamil Nadu and India.
