HEC Film and Television Dept at NCA

HEC establishes Film and Television Dept at NCA
Islamabad, June 05, 2008: The project of Higher Education Commission (HEC) to establish Department of Film and Television at the National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore, has been completed successfully and the Department has started providing education and training in the field of Film and Television Production.

The HEC has funded the renovation of the existing buildings and procurement of equipment for the establishment of the studio. The Department is presently offering a four-year bachelors degree programme in Film and Television Production and will soon launch a one year postgraduate Diploma in Script and Screenplay. It will also offer certificate and diploma courses and a master's degree programme in future. The need for this Department was felt because of the rapid expansion of media in the last decade as the international media giants, globalization of television media and acculturation due to foreign film and video materials is presenting a threat to our cultural identity in the new global village.

The NCA courses aim at preparing graduates capable of producing the artistic and professional moving images that are in great demand. The curriculum and disciplines (film, drama, documentary, news and current affairs, and such others) would include discourses on cultural effects, cultural identities and other communication issues in the new global village.

The existing NCA environment will help enlarge students' vision by triggering multiple layers of creative, intuitive and intellectual thought processes and seed a mastery of form, content and structures as well as solid fundamentals with the integration of digital media which has globally created its own space.
The NCA, as a college of arts, will also benefit from this programme. The incorporation of motion picture (film and television) courses will reinforce the existing teaching of visual arts and audio arts at the College. NNI
