THE PHENOMENAL RISE OF INDIAN FILM & TELEVISION
In the year 1959 when Cinema was advancing from black and white to colour and the passion of film makers had turned into a healthy competition it became imperative to have a single point of contact to support these creative visionaries. It was with the aim of helping these master craftsmen in times of crisis and for their welfare, the Assistant Directors founded IFDA (Indian Film Directors’ Association) as a Trade Union. More and more directors got enrolled to the association and as IFDA started growing it was renamed as IFTDA (Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association) on 23rd Dec. 2007.
Today we stand strong with more than 10,000 members pan India. Hon. President of IFTDA Mr. Ashoke Pandit, with his practical approach, sincere efforts & team of Hon. Office Bearers and Hon. Executive Committee Members, has taken IFTDA to new heights of glory and made it a brand name.
