NASHIK, AUGUST 19, 2015: Don Bosco High School & Junior College in Nashik joined forces with 55-other venues – in 18 states - around the country to participate in the Don Bosco International Film Festival on August 8.
Twenty films- as part of Don Bosco's bicentenary birth celebrations- were screened at the venue throughout the day from 8:45 a.m. till 6:30 p.m. The selections celebrated the spirit of youth with Polish, Spanish, Uzbek, English and French shorts together with Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi and Marathi language Indian entries.
The films appealed to higher secondary school students, junior college youth as well as adults and others with their simple yet profoundly moving themes. A few films that struck a chord with the audience were: Rage, Fulwanti & Slim-C, Sonyacha Amba, Kurtha and Love at First Sight!
Short interactions interspersed with questions, opinions, discussion and pointers enhanced the proceedings all through the event.
Yogesh Khare, the Bureau Chief of Zee News Marathi, was the Chief Guest for the event.
He lauded organisers for this 'first-of-its-kind venture' and urged students and others present to be media makers and not just media consumers.
Those present suggested that a programme of this nature should be held annually. Local media outlets like C News Nashik, Lokmat, Navbharat Times and Deshdoot covered the event.
