cliched this may sound as i have said it manier times, my beloved khalsa college has "once again" done it. khalsa college (now) second only to wilson, has organised a one minute film festival called "mausam biga beega" which has some 15 films that will be judged by a panel of students from other colleges. the topic given to them is "26 x 7 , are you ready for another round?". these would be mobifilms and will be shot on a maximum clarity of a 2 megapixel camera phone. guests who have confirmed their presence are meghna and madhusudan (founders: mam movies), subha and anushakti (csr: guajarat ambuja), nessar (country head:sony bmg), neil (radio jockey: red fm), anjulika (film maker), farida (documentary film maker) and many more. at this august occassion we would also be screening farida pacha's national award winning documentary "seedkeepers".
regarding the student jury, as of now, praban and shruti from jai haind have confirmed. i have requested pravesh sir to screen their classic movie "hiphopper" that was made in 2x speed, the one that won the first prize in polaris, to be screened as well. he has agreed. talks are on with wilson and other colleges. update karega jab information about other student jury milega.
this event is open to all. do not miss the movies made by these young budding talents, a word of praise for the praiseworthy, and some "points to ponder" for those who could improve.
all are invited. please do come. the hall is a 90 seater, so the earlier you come the better. do inform me if you are coming so that i could let the college know about the expected number.
all events in khalsa are very informal. all are family. so no bouquets just mentions and an opportunity to impregnate young minds with your thoughts is what we will give you.
the event starts at 1:30 - 1:45 pm on Saturday 09 August 2008. Its at the seminaar hall. You just need to tell the gate keeper that you have come for the festival.
Khalsa college is in matunga, 10 mins walk from wadala,matunga, kingscircle station, if coming from harbour, central or western respectively. if you are coming by western as in from the churchgate side... then you can get down at dadar and take a cab it/best it to khalsa college.
