I am doing my Junior College 2nd year with MPC . I would like to do graduation in Film editing . Does FTII, Pune, have any such course ? The web site of FTII, Pune, does not clearly state this. If there is, is it a short course or a regular graduation course? Also, I am told that there is a graduation course in Visual Communication at & short course in editing ?
