Vinit Ka­pu­para, chair­man of the fes­ti­val com­mit­tee, said: “FFF is an ini­tia­tive of the BMM depart­ment of SIES Col­lege, started in 2003. Years of hard work, fo­cus, de­ter­mi­na­tion and ge­nius minds have helped Frames achieve huge pop­u­lar­ity. It is one of the largest un­der- grad­u­ate film fes­ti­vals in In­dia.”

Purva Bhos­ale, me­dia PR, said: “The cat­e­gories for FFF are short films, doc­u­men­taries, an­i­ma­tion films, mu­sic videos, pub­lic ser­vice ad­ver­tise­ments and com­mer­cial ad­ver­tise­ments.”

Bhos­ale said, “FFF pro­vides a plat­form for the as­pir­ing film mak­ers to show­case their tal­ent and ex­plore the world of cinema.”

The fest fea­tures 30 en­tries of short films from BMM stream, 40 en­tries from non BMM stream, 8 doc­u­men­taries, 15 Ad films, 13 an­i­ma­tion films and 14 mu­sic videos. Vis­may Ka­mate, mem­ber of the celebrity PR team, said: “Frames is a per­fect plat­form for un­der­grad­u­ate film­mak­ers who are look­ing for a place to get no­ticed by the film fra­ter­nity. Frames gives them an op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­act with film­mak­ers, ac­tors, writ­ers and other pro­fes­sion­als.”

He added, “F rames has been as­so­ci­ated with qual­ity film- mak­ing. This year is no dif­fer­ent.”
