The Direction Department students of Roopkala Kendro are imparted with a holistic training in filmmaking. We try to strike a balance between theory and practice in a sharing and participatory mode. Students are provided with hands-on training in idea-development, script-writing, production planning, shooting and other related technical inputs like editing, sound designing, camera etc. They are exposed to fiction and non-fictional inputs semester-wise. An understanding of socio cultural and political scenario provides the basic framework of the course.

The course teaches history and development of cinema and its various movements - both national and international. Film viewing, film analysis and organising workshops with practising filmmakers form an important part of the course which make students aware about the medium. The Direction students are placed with Cinematography, Editing and Sound Design disciplines in the first semester before they move into specialization. The common platform of inputs enriches them immensely. Group Projects are undertaken semester-wise. Participation and sharing with fellow team members is a very important part of the curriculum.


Apart from the in-house faculties, many established film, theatre and media personalities like Tarun Majumdar, Moloy Bhattacharya, Sagir Ahmed, Amitabaha Chakraborty, Shekhar Das, Subhodro Chowdhury, Indranil Ghosh (Art Director), Monoj Mitra, Shubhashish Ganguly etc. share their experiences with students by taking classes and conducting workshops.

Direction students of previous batches are working in various capacities in cinema and television industry in Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi as confident and smart professionals as well as independent filmmakers.
