Kanpur Film and Theatre Society

The seeds for the initiation of Kanpur Film & Theatre Society were sown in 2009. KFTS successfully organized a seminar on revival of Nautanki, a dying art form which incidentally is linked to the city of Kanpur. The response which the seminar drew inspired the functionaries at Kanpur Film & Theatre Society to take the cause further.

Providing quality knowledge on various facets of Theatre and Film industry was a challenge and Kanpur Film & Theatre Society overcame this successfully by coordinating with Film & Television Institute of India (FTTI) and National Film Archives of India (NFAI). A film appreciation course was held in association with these two professional bodies paving the way for firm establishment of Kanpur Film & Theatre Society.
