Vision of our Mananging Director
We put a camera in your hands and you start making
Movies in your very first month of school. We give
You access to the core of the movie industry
Internships, employment opportunities, equipment
and experience. MDFA students learn all aspects of
Filmmaking. MDFA is about passion for film. Film–making
is one of the most team–intensive industries around.
If you can communicate, co–operate, lead and imagine
And think that your imagination can make some
Difference then, MDFA will always be at the back of you.
The Mumbai Digital Films Academy is an exciting and
Innovative venture in practical film training based in the
hub of one of the world’s leading film capitals.
Motto of the Film Academy
Mission Statement of MDFA.
Mumbai Digital Films Academy was founded on the
philosophy that "learning by doing" combined with
best industry practices is more valuable than years
of theoretical study for filmmakers and actors.
The Mumbai Digital Films Academy, film institute
programs are designed for a new generation of
storytellers: visual artists who share a passion for
motion pictures and want to learn by making their
own projects in a hands–on, intensive program.
Director of the Academy Says
"The standard of education at
MDFA enables students to go
Out into the industry with the
Skills and experience necessary
To find professional employment."
As technology changes so do our courses. We incorporate digital elements
in all our training but remain primarily geared around working with professional
35mm and 16mm film to ensure experience gained by our students is as
close to the professional film–making world as possible.. Whatever the changes in
technology, the language and grammar of making films always remain the same .
