Welcome to MGM Film Arts

MGM Film Arts enables students to prepare a foundation for a lucrative career in the film industry.

Why MGM Film Arts?
“True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.” -Albert Einstein
There are two major streams in the academics of cinema, film studies and film making. Film studies focuses on the philosophical or discussion oriented part of studying cinema, where film making focuses on the technical aspect of film making.

Practice sessions:
Practice sessions are the sessions based on practical. Our experts defined certain set of skills that need to be developed in students. E.g. a cinematographer must excel in focus pulling, hence he is supposed to do intensive practice under the guidance of mentor to excel in the skill.

Implicit learning:
Along with the practice students are supposed to do lot of implicit learning by watching masterpieces by the legendary film makers. It will be supported by discussions and interactions with such makers.

Film making is not just about ranting some philosophy or learning any equipment. A student who knows any editing software cannot be certified as a editor. He must achieve the excellence in the art of film editing. To achieve excellence we will make them work on the result of their judgments. Specially defined programs will boost the sensitivity and creativity in the students.

One cannot achieve excellence in a day. As Aristotle says, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”


The skill set and confidence developed at MGM Film Arts will fuel our students to rise to the top of entertainment industry.
