JORHAT, JAN 25: A day-long Don Bosco Youth Film Festival of India, which is a Boscom South Asia initiative, kicked off at the auditorium of Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Baghchung which was opened by renounced Bollywood sound designer Amrit Pritam after lighting a traditiol lamp, while Fr. Regimani, the Principal of the school, spoke about the 26 Hindi and English short films that were screened on the iugural day on Thursday. Bollywood sound designer Amrit Pritam said it is a great initiative taken by Don Bosco Society. “When I was in school I did not know anything about films, how they worked or how they were made. But later when I joined film school I came to know about films and the technicalities of film making. This kind of film festival will bring revolution among the students and they will learn about film making. This great initiative of Don Bosco Society has entered its third year,” said Pritam.
He further said that films, which consist of audio-visual images, were easy to understand, easy to memorize and learn clearly through the visual impact. Instead of killing or spending time on Whatsapp or Facebook, the young generation should use their free and leisure time wisely and watch films to build their knowledge. Fr. KA Thomas lauded the role and sacrifice of Don Bosco for the uplift of the youths loitering on the streets and for this reason his death anniversary was organized as DBYFFI, which was the Spirit of Youths. Altogether 10 schools from the district took part in the Don Bosco Youth Film Festival.
