National Forums, International Forums & Film Associations

AAFT, in association with International Chamber of Media & Entertainment Industry (ICMEI), has created independent forums that seek to bring diverse opinions to one table; the learned insights of visionaries, academicians and thought leaders as well as the adept practicality of policy makers, corporate, voluntary and professional organizations.

There are National Forums that engage many institutions and organizations in India with AAFT. The International Forums and other global cross-country associations foster and enhance cultural linkages between the nations. The purpose of each forum is to deepen the institutional ties in numerous ways: in areas of collaborative research emphasizing the arts, cultural and media sectors, faculty exchanges and seminars on aesthetic experience from artists and cultural organizations from different countries.

Forum Objectives


The forums facilitate us to collaborate with other organizations and countries across the globe while representing the subject in general, complement each others’ work and promote the importance of creative work financially, socially and culturally.


All forums recognize the differing cultures in diverse parts of the world and show same respect for human dignity in all the social interactions.


These forums take on the responsibility of informing our members about the latest developments, nationally and internationally, in the field of arts & culture.
