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. It proved to be a functional solace for those who were aspiring to get shortlisted.

It has been more than two decades, 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 which can slake it.

FTII -JET evaluates a student at two fronts; first, the level of information and second, the analytical power.

  • Fifty per cent of the marks are devoted to ‘ domain specificquestions’ which are descriptive in nature to evaluate the area of interest and students’ investigative adroitness.
  • Another fifty percent of the marks are allotted to objective type questions, out of which 25% – 30% questions are related to GK , 30% related to mental ability and rest are MCQs related to cinema, art, painting, dance, music, theatre, photography etc.

This book precisely caters to MCQ genre related to cinema and art section.
