Students get big picture

Screening of films is nothing new in the Delhi University’s North campus but for the first time the students witnessed a host of fantastic documentaries last week. The Department of Sociology, Delhi University in association with JB Media Resource Center, AJK MCRC, Jamia Millia Islamia/ School of Environmental Studies/ Alliance Francaise/ Embassy of France/ Embassy of Brazil/ Embassy of The Netherlands organised the first Delhi International Ethnographic Film Festival (DIEFF). For Delhi University the chosen venue was Vivekananda Hall, Delhi School of Economics, which incidentally is considered as the meeting points of many great working brains of the campus apart from being one of the coolest hangout zones.One thing that sets the film festival apart was the presence of filmmakers and film critics from different countries who took active part in several panel discussions and post screening interaction with the various audiences present at the venue. This not only provided a perfect opportunity for the spectators that comprised of the students, lecturers and other staff members of the colleges to discuss issues threadbare but also led to a more animated debate among the audience which is quite a rarity in the campus film screening programs that are often held in the premises of the campus. The Department of Sociology has made a fresh beginning with DIEFF. Hope it continues to touch new heights by screening famous documentaries in the coming years and enlightening the students.
