Everyone has a story to tell! From books to stage to screen to OTT - the medium has changed but the conviction has remained intact! There was a time when filmmakers like Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwik Ghatak, Tapan Sinha dominated the silver screen with their exploration of various themes and emotions in celluloid. But does the end of their era mean the extinction of Indian or Bengali cinema?
There are passionate young minds who have a bagful of stories to narrate. They need the opportunity! They need the exposure! In this regard, Brainware University plays a pioneering role in encouraging the students to pursue their passion and make a living out of it in future.
An educational visit to 'Bengal Shorts - International Competitive Short Film Festival' was organised by the Department of Multimedia and Animation from July 1, 2022, to July 3, 2022, at Aikatan, EZCC in Salt Lake. Incidentally, the event was organised by ROSTRUM and was conducted by the Department of Multimedia and Animation, Brainware University, and Deep Focus Cine Club, the cine club of the university.
