Event: 16:9 International Film Festival
Host: Usha Pravin Gandhi College of Management
When: 15th & 16th January, 2010
As a student of BMM, one generally dreams of outdoor shoots, news reports, media personnel, and of course filmmaking. The perception of glam never leaves the mind as one enters into this field filled, right from the first year, with dreams of the limelight!
Here’s a call from some of your brethren in the field of filmmaking – sixteen:nine International Film Festival is here to let you live your dream of the glamorous side of Mass Media. A short-film festival that encourages student filmmakers from all over the world to express themselves. SNIFF hosts not only film screenings, but is also home to a wide range of filmmaking-related contests – such as photography, acting, Mise-en-Scene, editing and all things remotely filmy. Welcome aboard a world of hard work, sleepless nights – (aren’t we BMMites already used to it?) that surely leads to a universe of glitz, glamour and success.
SNIFF is your first step towards being a full-fledged cinematic persona – giving you the ultimate film experience.
Organised by the students of SVKM’s Usha Pravin Gandhi College of Management – SNIFF also boasts of being the first student-organized short film festival from Mumbai to go International. For a festival barely 3 years old, and with an initial association of 7 countries apart from India, SNIFF now boasts of a mind-boggling 40 country bond, which promises to expand with coming years. Our participants hail from countries such as U.S.A., U.K., Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Romania, Japan etc.
The prizes, in the past years, have included certificates and trophies, and Internships for the winner of Actor hunt. The alluring competitions attracted students from all over the country. It was heartening to see the enthusiasm of the aspiring filmmakers of tomorrow. College contingents also competed for the Best College Trophy – a temptation left for you to exploit even this year, and with the commencement of the Polling event – it just seems closer.
Another feather in the hat is the starlist that takes pride in associating with us – from veterans like Shabana Azmi , Kiran V. Shantaram and Aziz Mirza- to the younger, enthusiastic generation of film personalities such as Anurag Kashyap, Perizaad Zorabian and Imran Khan. SNIFF ’09 also had the beautiful Madhuri Dixit gracing the closing ceremony along with Imran Khan, Sanjay Gupta and Goldie Behl.
With a golden opportunity arriving this January 15th and 16th, the wise will set their equipment in action and the creative will burst with ideas as sixteen:nine International Film Festival 2010 marches in.
Brace yourself for another ride through films, fantasies and the fun element you’ve been waiting for in the world of Media.
