Film And Television Institute Of India
One of the best and most reputed film school in India as well as world wide. Established in 1960, located at Pune. FTII alumina comprises of Subhaash Guy, Rasool Pokutty(Oscar winner),Nasiruddin Shah and many more. Established in a very spacious area of 30 acres of land and now planning to extend it to 27 acres in future to make it into a International film school. Its a dream for aspiring filmmakers to get a seat in this film school. This film school offers wide range of film courses like direction,acting,film editing,cinematography etc.,. But seats are limited to 26 in number for all the departments except acting. If u want to step up into direction department in this film school its a mandatory thing to have a graduation degree.

Whistling Woods International
One of my most recommended film school for aspiring filmmakers. If u have money don't think twice go and get a seat from this film school. This is located at Mumbai. Established in the year 2006 by the famous producer and director Subhaash Ghai. It has got all the facilities needed to fulfill the needs of an budding filmmaker. All the equipment in this institute is equipped with Sony Technology. You can listen classes from legends like Subhash Ghai, A.R. Rehman, Nasiruddin Shah, Hema Malini, Shyam Benegal and many more. So, as mentioned above don't think twice to join this film school guys. But if u don't have proper financial support then think twice. Since joining this film school is very expensive. But a fantastic film school one can dream of.

Center For Research In Art Of Film And Television
This is one of the non governmental Organisation set to impart quality education in the fields of film making and television. Located at New Delhi. Established in the year 2009. But guys do not expect something like what u get in Whistling woods or any other film school which i have mentioned here. Since, this film school is governed by a trust. Faculty is okay but u cannot expect accommodation here. U have to look after your accommodation facilities if u want join this film school. And also, seats available are very minimum just ten in number. But like FTII this film school also provides many many of courses depending upon your interest u can choose your department. Overall, a good film school with moderate facilities don not compare with costly film schools like Whistling woods or Chennai film Institute.
