    About Whistling Woods International: Founded by one of the India’s leading filmmakers – Subhash Ghai and promoted by Mukta Arts Limited & Filmcity Mumbai, Whistling Woods Interational (WWI) has been rated amongst the top 10 film schools in the world by ‘The Hollywood Reporter’. The WWI Mumbai campus of 20-acres is located inside Mumbai’s film & television production hub ‘Filmcity’, and offers courses that vary in duration from 1 year to 3 years in Acting, Animation, Cinematography, Direction, Editing, Producing, Screenwriting, Sound and Media & Entertainment studies with an MBA in Media and Communication. WWI also plans to launch a School of Design soon with programs in fashion design, Graphic design, communication design. The curriculum at WWI is a unique hybrid of theoretical and practical aspects, ensuring that the creative dovetails well with the business aspects. The full-time faculty of WWI is a body of academics and renowned industry professionals like Subhash Ghai, Rajen Kothari, Rob Reece, Anjum Rajabali, Rakesh Ranjan and more, with regular guest lectures by leading Indian & International filmmakers, actors & technicians like Ashutosh Gowarikar, Farhan Akhtar, Shyam Benegal, Naseeruddin Shah, Danny Boyle, Rajkumar Hirani, Rakeysh Mehra, Vishal Bharadwaj, Farah Khan, Nagesh Kukunoor, and several more. WWI Alumni are currently working at several leading media organisations like Aamir Khan Productions, Annapurna Studios, BIG Animation, Balaji Telefilms, Dharma Productions, Dreamworks, Excel Entertainment, Fox Star Studios India, Mukta Arts Ltd, Percept Picture Company, Prime Focus, Rajshri, Red Chillies Entertainment, Reliance Mediaworks, Rhythm & Hues, Star TV, Technicolour, Walkwater Film, UTV Motion Pictures, Yashraj Films and several more. In early 2011, Sony setup a global Media technology Center – a Center of Excellence focused on HD & 3D filmmaking at the WWI Mumbai campus. Sony has recognised WWI as a leader in the Media & Entertainment education sector in Asia and decided to partner with the Institute for setting up their 3rd global center, the first two in London & LA, being standalone centers. In 2010, WWI became the youngest filmschool to be recognised as a full member of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision) – a global association of film schools, which lays very high standards on admitting members (there are only 150 members of CILECT out of over 3000 global film schools). WWI was also invited to partner with India’s premier High School Board - the CBSE board by the Ministry of Human Resource Development - Government of India to design a Media Studies curriculum for the country’s primary High School board (the CBSE board). WWI has prepared the curriculum, teaching methodology & is undertaking teacher training for the ‘Media Studies’ elective in the 11th & 12th grade. The above is just a snapshot of what Whistling Woods International has achieved in the short span of five years and the Institute strongly marches on its way to fulfilling it’s goal – to be the institute of choice for media education globally.
