About the book
It was a vital move by Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata when they converted their entrance exam to Joint Entrance Test (JET) in 2018.
FTII -JET evaluates a student at two fronts; first, the level of information and second, the analytical power.
- 80 marks are devoted to ‘ Domain Specific Questions’ which are descriptive ( 50 marks) + MSQ ( 30 marks) in nature to evaluate the area of interest and students’ investigative adroitness.
- 20-marks are devoted to MCQs related to cinema, art, painting, dance, music, theatre, photography .
It has been more than 25 years after graduating from FTII in 1993, I have been conducting workshops on various aspects of film making. Many a times I have encountered the most obvious question – How to prepare for FTII entrance exam ? Till now there is no reliable customized material available in a book form/ Online version .

We published two edition 2019 & 2020 edition of the MCQ book.After that we stopped printing hard copy . Realizing that
1.) We cannot update the book till the 1000 copies are sold. Once book is written you cannot add new questions till the next edition comes, which is always a problem with such kind of books, where you need to add more questions.
2.) Image size will be small in the book.
3) Multiple images related to some of the questions was missing in the book due to limitation of the space.
4.) Hard copy book is not Interactive where student will not come to know immediately his score.
