Revathy Kalamandir

In 1993, G.Sureshkumar started the production house Revathy Kalamndhir. 43 movies were produced under the banner of Revathy Kalamndhir.

Revathy Kalamndhir was built over three decades of painstaking and dedicated endeavor.

"The quintessential film school from God's Own Country"

India is the largest film producer in the world, and our television industry is the 3rd largest in the world. We produce more than 1300 feature films every year, and the numbers of television channels have gone beyond 800. Total television viewership of 416 million is world’s highest. Entertainment Industry in India is one of the fastest growing industries. Industry experts project the scenario of an INR 10 Billion box office hit in the near future. Indian Entertainment Industry already employs 6 million people directly and indirectly. A 12.5% yearly growth rate is predicted for Indian Entertainment Industry.

At this juncture, there is a need for highly trained and motivated people to work in the Indian entertainment industry. The complexity of the technology and the subtleties of the cinematic art demands a methodical study of the crafts related to film making. Till recently the major film training schools were run by the government sector. In Kerala, there was a severe lack of an A-Class film school. Revathy Kalamandir Film Academy steps into this void and offers you the best infrastructure facilities and excellent faculty to make your dreams come true.

Mission & Vision

Revathy Kalamandir Film Academy is founded on the true belief in the principles of creative excellence and freedom. We value tradition as well as fresh ideas that propel the growth of the individual and the industry. A vibrant and creative audio-visual culture is based on multi-skilled, flexible, highly collaborative groups - and we want to train students to become such energetic and creative groups. Our programs are aimed at the new generation filmmaker with certain aims: empowering the students with professional ability in the key work areas and make them learn to collaborate creatively with fellow students as much as from teachers. We also encourage students to think about cinema practically and to inculcate the habit of questioning their presumptions rigorously and applying their instincts creatively. The students we want are lively, cooperative, imaginative people who learn through practicing and collaboration.

Director's Note

Storytelling is an integral part of human activity, helping us develop as a species. Today we are aware of the many ways in which images are influencing our daily life. Images surround us everywhere. It is our lifeline to culture and civilization. It is a catalyst for a creative existence and a road of life with joy. Cinema Halls, Television, Internet, Game Stations, Computers and Mobile Phones thus become the bubbling hubs of storytelling in the modern world. Yes, there is a huge demand for the storyteller in the audio-visual media.

Within the growing global entertainment industry, India is fast becoming a role player, and the need for talented, highly skilled and motivated creators and professionals are increasing. Kerala never had any such vibrant and visionary school to teach cinema and television. Within this urgent need, we Revathy Kalamandir Film Academy steps in with a dedicated aim of providing truly empowering education for the students of cinema and other audio-visual media.

To begin with we must believe that film education/teaching is as serious a pursuit as any other subjects like medicine, law or management. We must also accept film as an industry, therefore, cultivate necessary discipline among the students. We promise to create an environment of artistic freedom in which students can learn to their heart's content. It is our endeavor to familiarize each student with other art forms such as theater, music and painting. Our aim is to impart excellence in technical skills, and it is our responsibility to provide better infrastructure facilities for the students.

In the ancient Indian tradition, an artist is considered as a shilpi-yogi. The artistic imagination is considered to be a higher form of meditation and practice of art as a form of yoga. It shows us the need for a deeper commitment and rigorous practice from the student's part to achieve those higher levels of expression and communication. We want our graduates to be more than a skilled professional, as an individual we want each one of our students to develop a true human sensibility with a vision of humanity’s oneness.
