WHY STUDY AT Glitters Film Academy

One would be hard-pressed to find a program that provides as much practical exposure to filmmaking. More than 100 films are shot per year in Tollywood (Hyderabad Telugu Film Industry) and students during the Course participate at least in one film. The operating principle of Glitters Film Academy is training, and we believe as with instruments or with languages, the only way to develop fluency is to practice.

    High-end facilities:

    Glitters Film Academy is well-stocked with the latest cutting-edge equipment used in professional film productions. Students have immediate access to the school's fleet of cameras, Canon and Sony high definition cameras, in addition to high-end lighting, sound and grip.

    The type of student who chooses Glitters Film Academy comes to us because he or she has essentially only one year in terms of time or financial resources to cross from where he or she is in life at the moment into the world of professional filmmaking. We then have only six months to bring these students to a level of competence where they can operate professionally. As such the program is highly squeezed.

    Most students at our school have completed undergraduate studies and see their time at film school as a cherished chance to wed their deep interests with a vocation. As such, the administration treats all students as responsible adults and trusts students to take full responsibility for their studies. The school does not interfere with students’ artistic choices.


Each stage of the process is developed under the supervision of the faculty whose courses cover theoretical and technical topics aimed at deepening knowledge and honing technical skills. The Three Month program is divided into two semesters. First semester, each student completes foundation courses in screenwriting, directing, and editing. Students also enroll in two elective courses while receiving additional training in sound, lighting, camera movement and grip. Practical exercises are integrated into the curriculum and each student directs 2 Short films. During the second semester, students specialize in one or two areas of their choice. Each specialization has its own curriculum. As part of the specializations, each student writes and directs 2 to 3 Short films.
