The Ramoji Academy of Film & Television (RAFT) was established for the purpose of turning out well-trained and rounded young professionals for positions in the film and television industries. The rapid expansion in these industries has brought to the fore a strong demand for technical and theoretical training in several departments. RAFT, by providing courses designed with industry requirements in mind, aims to contribute towards meeting this demand.
The Academy offers Diploma courses in Directing, Cinematography, Acting, Screenwriting, Digital Filmmaking, and Editing. Directing and Cinematography programs are run as two-year Post Graduate diploma courses; Acting, Editing, Digital Filmmaking, and Screenwriting programs are run as one-year diploma courses.
All programs are designed to be hands-on and to incorporate latest industry standards. A strong theoretical foundation is laid but the stress is on practical work. Students are constantly engaged in projects and exercises that test and expand their understanding of concepts. This emphasis on application is intended to put RAFT students at an advantage when they enter the industry.
In an environment where technology is driving changes in industry, the Academy is seized of the importance of training its students on cutting-edge equipment. To this end, RAFT periodically upgrades its facilities, classrooms, and equipment and ensures that they are state-of-the-art. RAFT’s sprawling and elegant campus also provides an ideal environment for learning and creativity. The academy is nestled in Ramoji Film City – the world’s largest film studio complex recognized by Guinness World Records -- and is surrounded by bustling film activity
The Academy draws its faculty from among working professionals in the industry. The mandate given to faculty is to constantly endeavor to integrate theory and practice. RAFT has other close connections with the industry, especially through its in-house film and television arms (Ushakiron Movies and ETV), and utilizes these to expose students to actual professional work. Being part of the Ramoji Group, which has a leading presence in film, entertainment infrastructure, and television, gives the Academy an unparalleled advantage in this regard.
In terms of course design, faculty, and state-of-the-art equipment the Ramoji Academy of Film & Television holds a distinct edge.
