Basically, I am interested to work in animation or film editing. Is there any graduation course in Film editing in the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune? What is the eligibility? Is there any short course in Editing? Does it have a course in Visual communication design? If the Film Institute does not have it, where can do it?

FTII, Pune does not offer any courses in Visual Communication Design. You can do a Bachelor of Design or equivalent course in Visual Communication Design from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati and from National Institute of Design (NID), Paldi, Ahmedabad. For the IITG course, you will have to qualify through the IIT-JEE examination and for the course at NID, there is an entrance examination.
