The aims and objectives of the Division, focused on national perspectives, are to educate and motivate the people in the implementation of national programmes and to project the image of the land and the heritage of the country to Indian and foreign audiences. The Division also aims at fostering the growth of the documentary film movement, which is of immense significance to India in the field of information, communication and integration.
