Vetri Maaran to head filmmaking course to create socially responsible directors 

Filmmaker Vetri Maaran has announced a one-year filmmaking postgraduate diploma course that will encourage young directors to make films that promote social equality. The course is a residential program conducted by Vetri's International Institute of Film and Culture and it aims to take in students from economically weaker sections of society. 

Apart from teaching the students the creative and technological aspects of a film, the institute aims to encourage them to incorporate elements like commercial acumen, cultural rootedness, ecological sensitivity, and social responsibility.

The students will be given a complete scholarship if they clear the initial screening, written test, academic interview, professional interview, and home verification. It is mandatory that the student must be from Tamil Nadu and the IIFC aims to admit one student from each district of the state. 

Meanwhile, Vetri Maaran is currently working on his untitled film with Soori and Vijay Sethupathi. He also has Vaadi Vaasal with Suriya, a web series, Vada Chennai prequel series, and a potential film with Vijay in the pipeline.
