The University Film Club, Aligarh Muslim University, was established by some enthusiastic faculty members back in 1974 with the aim to promote the cinematic culture among the students of AMU and to encourage a milieu where ‘poetry in motion’ becomes one of the great sources for their aesthetic and academic excellence.
From Kanan Devi to Naseeruddin Shah, K A Abbas to Javed Akhtar, Shakil Badauni to Kaifi Azmi, and last but not the least, Anubhav Sinha and Ajay Jhingran, the list of AMU alumni, who left their mark in the film fraternity in terms of direction, screenplay, lyrics, music etc is endless. The club does not bask in the glory of the past but University Film Club also always strives to motivate the students towards the creative world of films by organizing film festivals, workshops, lecture series and other various programmes.
