“The Geetha Krishna International Film School in Vijayawada (GKIFS), I propose to start here, aims at grooming local talent in film-making. There is no film training institute in the city with many young enthusiasts trying their hand in short films. They have the talent and passion but have no idea about a full-length film-making. I am not just doing this because I hail from Andhra Pradesh; the intention is also to aid Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s plans on Transformation of the State into a modern one equipped with all the frills,” the film-maker told in press meet on Thursday.
Geetha Krishna says he is looking for suitable place which could be allotted by the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC). “We have asked for a 1,000 square yard site. My training institute will follow the New York Film Academy syllabus,” he said. He further says, Once the state government provides us land, which we have requested, we will construct our own building, which will be stylish and iconic.”
“We are looking for students who are passionate about filmmaking and we will mould them into filmmakers and technicians. Already around 15 aspiring Film Makers have approached us for training and we are also conducting workshops at universities and colleges,” he said.
