Film And Television Institute Of India - [FTII], Pune

Film and Television Institute of India, Law College Road, Pune, Pincode-411004, Maharashtra, India

The institute was established in 1960 and started its courses in 1961. The Television Training wing, which was earlier functioning in New Delhi, shifted to Pune in 1974. Thereafter, the institute became fully aided by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. In July 2011, Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said that a bill in Parliament to develop the FTII into a 'Centre of Excellence' would be introduced. This would enable the institute to enjoy the academic status and privileges of a university.

In February 2015, Gajendra Chauhan was appointed as the chairman of the institute,[3] which sparked protests by students at the institute.

On 18 August 2015, police — in a night-time crackdown — arrested striking students who confined FTII director Prashant Pathrabe and other staffers in his office for eight hours. The director claimed that students harassed and mentally tortured him. The students were released on bail. A video showing students surrounding the director and shouting was released by the management. In response the students released an undated video of cops manhandling students and breaking glass in the director's office, The striking students vehemently condemned the act by the Pune police to come and arrest students past midnight.
