The promoters of City Pulse conceived of an Academy which was created under a trust titled City Pulse Educational Charitable Trust (Regd.) that would be autonomous and would function as a center for excellence in imparting knowledge on the Film, Television, Performing Arts and Visual Arts. Infrastructure at the campus has been planed to start the following institutes in:
Film and Television: i.e. City Pulse Institute of Film & Television
Performing Arts: i.e. City Pulse Institute of Performing & Visual Arts
These Institutes will not only cultivate skills but also to imbue fresh, young minds with basic concepts of a value-based education that remains long after the training is over.
City Pulse Academy of Creative Arts is different from a regular organisation in its philosophy, culture and structure, which permeates down to all faculty, staff and students. It does not comprise solely the infrastructure, equipment or building, but is primarily made up of the teachers and those who are taught. The rest only makes up the support system. The emphasis is on all-round cerebral growth; not confined to a particular skill, but to all affiliated arts like Music, Dance, Drama, Painting and Sculpture for which teaching infrastructure already exists. What has been created, subsequently, is a comprehensive support system and an integrated intellectual base, not usually found in most institutes.
Organisation of CPIFT
City Pulse Institute of Film & Television is an autonomous body set up by CITY PULSE EDUCATIONAL CHARITABLE TRUST (Regd.) The Institute will be guided by a Governing Council constituted by inviting eminent people from Film and Television industry, representing various disciplines of film direction, script writing, acting, cinematography, music direction and film production management, marketing, film journalism and the allied fields like performing arts & architecture.
The day-to-day working of the Institute is guided by a Managing Committee appointed by CITY PULSE EDUCATIONAL CHARITABLE TRUST (Regd.) in consultation with Governing Council of CPIFT. The Institute is headed by the Director who will look after the academic and administrative management. Each discipline has a Head of the Department, and is aided by an eminent professional in his/her respective discipline. There shall be a pool of visiting faculty constituting prominent professionals in different areas of film making. The main criteria for selecting the Permanent and Visiting Faculty are bright professionals who can inspire students and undertake academic programmes while continuing their own professional activities.
More than the organisation and infrastructure, it is the faculty and the students who will make this Institute a centre of excellence.
