NAVI MUM­BAI: San­pada Col­lege of Com­merce and Tech­nol­ogy (SCCT) or­gan­ised as an in­ter­col­le­giate short film-mak­ing com­pe­ti­tion ‘Screen On’ Satur­day.

A to­tal of 50 en­tries were sub­mit­ted; out of which the best 20 were se­lected and screened. Many col­leges across Mum­bai and Navi Mum­bai in­clud­ing SK Somaiya, Acharya Marathe, SIES (Nerul), JVM Me­hta Col­lege par­tic­i­pated in this event.

The pro­gramme started with the guests of hon­our Ashok Pu­rang, Adi­tiya Seal, Limin Mathew and Sour­ish Sen, light­ing the lamp with the Ganesh Van­dana be­ing sung by the stu­dents.

“The theme of the films was open and al­most all of them were made with a so­cial mes­sage. Over 300 stu­dents from dif­fer­ent depart­ment of the col­lege and some other peo­ple watched the films,” said Rahul Gadge, a stu­dent of the col­lege.

The judges re­viewed all the films and gave away prizes for best film, screen­play, edit­ing, cin­e­matog­ra­phy, di­rec­tion, story, sound, ac­tor and ac­tress.

This was an ini­tia­tive taken up by the stu­dents of BMM depart­ment, SCCT, to show­case

their tal­ent in film-mak­ing and nur­tur­ing it.

“The over­whelm­ing re­sponse from the col­leges made the event a suc­cess. For nur­tur­ing the cre­ativ­ity of the stu­dents and boost­ing their con­fi­dence, we are plan­ning to or­gan­ise more such pro­grames,” he said.

Su­chi­tra Bolui, an­other stu­dent, said that the movies had mes­sages like re­spon­si­bil­ity and mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion in love af­fair, child labour and its

im­pact in the In­dian so­ci­ety and ef­fects of ter­ror­ism.

“In one movie, a girl sends a text mes­sage to her boyfriend say­ing that she was not happy in the re­la­tion­ship and wants a break-up. Af­ter a few min­utes, she sends an­other mes­sage say­ing that the pre­vi­ous mes­sage was noth­ing but a joke. But, the boyfriend takes the first mes­sage se­ri­ously and he com­mits sui­cide be­fore re­ceiv­ing the se­cond mes­sage,” she said.

“Some movies also fo­cussed on the is­sue faced by our so­ci­ety and how some peo­ple cre­ate trou­bles for oth­ers. Some of them also show in the im­por­tance of hon­esty and hard work in life,” she added.
