CINEMAC Short / Documentary Film Competition on Feb 14, 2007 at Delhi Campus

NEW DELHI: Rai Foundation's College of Media and Communication (CMAC) organized a pre launch screening of 'Bollywood Bosses' of History Channel and CINEMAC Short / Documentary Film Competition on February 14, 2007 at Delhi Campus.

Mr. Joy Bhattacharya, Vice president, programming of the History Channel, Mr. Raza Haider, President of Shikha - a Development Communication Organization and Head of the Dept. - Cinema Studies at School of Communication & Cine Arts and Ms. Sabiha Farhat, Documentary Filmmaker were jury members for the CINEMAC Short / Documentary Film Competition.

Mr. Bhattacharya in his principle lecture told students that they have made a difficult choice by opting for media, which is not essentially all about glamour and money. It takes hard work and passion to excel in the field. The pre-launch screening of 'Bollywood Bosses', a production of History Channel, was appreciated by students a lot. It's followed by award ceremony.

CINEMAC, an all student venture, at CMAC is a film club that screens documentaries, short films, Classics and Contemporary Cinema from Bollywood to Hollywood. This is the first time that CINEMAC in four years of its existence organized this competition. It involved CMAC alumna work that they produced during their stint with college; along with the current students' work.

Kunal Pruthi's directorial venture "I was scared of Ram' won the first prize. Kunal is Programming Head of 104 Radio Tarang. His film touched sensitive religious issues with great deal of sensibility. Abhijeet Singh's 'Manzar' and Rohit Sarkar's 'Calling to My Will' won the second and third prizes. The distinguished jury members Mr. Haider and Ms. Farhat gave crucial feedback on all the nominations.

The CMAC students enjoyed the program, which offered an objective view on their work. CMAC Dean Ms Kakul Rizvi showing satisfaction over the success of the event said the College would broaden the spectrum of this competition by inviting larger participation next time.
