It's indeed a remarkable collaboration as the makers of the biggest commercial blockbusters like KGF, Kantara, and Salaar are giving it back to the entertainment industry and entering into the film institutions business. This is indeed a need of an hour to bring a massive change in the nourishment of upcoming talents in the entertainment industry. 

SoFMCA is set to welcome its first cohort of students in August 2024, with programs designed to provide comprehensive training in various aspects of filmmaking and media production. The initiative promises to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical industry experience, preparing students for successful careers in these dynamic fields.

He emphasized that the collaboration with RVU aims to nurture and empower the next generation of filmmakers and media professionals. Kiragandur envisions this initiative as a groundbreaking movement to cultivate visionary storytellers who will shape the future of global entertainment. He reiterated Hombale Films' commitment to providing students with the tools and opportunities necessary to create impactful narratives on a global scale.

Commenting on RVU’s partnership with Hombale Films, Dr. M.P. Shyam, President of Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust (RSST, RVU’s parent sponsoring body) said, “RV University is committed to fostering innovation and excellence in education. Our partnership with Hombale Films to establish the School of Film, Media and Creative Arts is a testament to this commitment. This collaboration will not only provide our students with world-class training and industry exposure at one of the largest studio and production houses in the country, but also contribute significantly to the growth and evolution of the film and media industry in India and beyond through the next-generation filmmakers telling unique local stories using global techniques. We look forward to seeing our students thrive in this dynamic environment and emerge as filmmakers, film technicians and entertainment media entrepreneurs of global calibre and repute.”
