Mise-en-Scène 2013, the International Students' Film Festival at IP College
Every year, the department organizes an International Students' Film Festival, Misè-en-Scene and an Annual National Media Seminar, Meet the Media. Misè-en-scene aims to provide students with a platform to showcase their skills in film-making through creative and thought-provoking films. Its Indie fest segment is a great opportunity for the students to interact with independent filmmakers and observe their work. The festival also includes 'Frame Politik', a photography competition and a non-competitive photography exhibition that are meant to exhibit students' still photographic masterpieces. Meet the Media is a national seminar in which eminent media personalities debate, discuss and deliberate upon a specific media-related topic.
