To cel­e­brate cin­ema and to cre­ate a vi­tal link be­tween film mak­ing and the stu­dent com­mu­nity, the Board of Direc­tors (BoD), In­dian Schools in Oman has con­ceived the idea of pro­vid­ing a plat­form for the stu­dents of all In­dian Schools in Oman to script, act and di­rect short movies.

De­cem­ber 5 for stu­dents of par­tic­i­pat­ing schools at Golden Tulip Ho­tel, Ruwi. Renowned South In­dian Cine­matog­ra­pher and Direc­tor, Sabu James, was the re­source per­son of the train­ing pro­gramme.
