Dimapur, Nov. 3 (EMN): A three-day campus film festival 2.0, organised by the Multi Media and Mass Communication department of Patkai Christian College in collaboration with the Film Association of Nagaland, got underway at the college auditorium on November 1 on the theme “Exploring the world of cinematic realism.”

Speaking at the launch event, the special guest and joint director (IEC) of Health department, Metevinuo Sakhrie, stated that Nagaland State Aids Control Society (NSACS) under the aegis of the National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) has been organising online short films competition since 2020 on the theme “Knowledge is bliss.” She stated that the objective of the short film competition was to use the power of audio-visual medium blended with the creativity of young minds to spread awareness about the HIV/AIDS, stated a DIPR report.

Sakhrie lauded the department of Multi-media and Mass Communication (PCC) for winning in various categories in all the editions of NSACS short film competition.

The special guest and DPRO of Dimapur, Lolano Patton, expressed elation to note the emergence of many talented Naga film makers, who documentaries and short films have attracted global audience despite the scenario of film industry in Nagaland still being at its nascent stage.

Stating that there are so many interesting stories about Nagaland that are worth narrating, she impressed upon the upcoming film makers and the students of multi-media and mass communication to explore the unexplored Nagaland by focusing on the rich Naga culture and traditions.

She expressed optimism that the upcoming Naga film makers would bring more accolades with their stories through films even in the days to come.

PCC founder principal, Rev. Dr. Tuisem Shishak, faculty and students of Multi-media and Mass Communication attended the inaugural programme.
