General Information

K.R.Narayanan National Institute of Visual Science & Arts is an innovative venture in professional film / audio-visual training and a research centre of international
standards established by the Government of Kerala at Thekkumthala in Kottayam District.

The rapid developments in the field of visual media with its wide scope and potential, has opened up wide opportunities in the creative world. The purview of this medium has been extending to various faces of human life day by day. But, India is yet to emerge as a leader in this area, mainly due to lack of expertise and exposure to the latest developments in the technological aspects of filmmaking and digital arts. Providing quality training and fine tuning talented and qualified hands may be the answer to this problem. India is a country with rich, deep-rooted traditions in art and culture. With the exposure to global concepts and a deeper
knowledge of the technological advances worldwide, better training methods at par with international standards may have to be developed. It is in this regard that the Government of Kerala conceived the idea of establishing a National Institute of Visual Science & Arts in the name of the late Shri. K.R. Narayanan, the former President of India.
