The Prestige Film Festival is infused with an idealistic spirit that enables filmmakers and members of various communities to interact personally and exchange ideas. The Mass Communication department at the UG campus of the Prestige Institute of Management and Research hosted the fifth Prestige International Film Festival.
”Learn the golden rules of the silver screen” is the premise under which we began our trip in 2017. Celebrating 100 years of cinema was the theme of the second edition in 2018, “genius women of the film business” was the focus of the third edition in 2019, and “celebrating cinema – colours of life and beyond” was the theme of our fourth edition. The following year, in 2022, we returned with the theme “Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of Cinema.”. For us, These five years were both priceless and overwhelming.
This year’s PIFF will mark its sixth edition in the chain of Prestige international film festivals.
Starflix was the celebration of the year and it was met with great enthusiasm from students, faculty and staff alike. Everyone came dressed up as their favorite characters from the movie, creating a unique atmosphere that was filled with joy. It was a great sight to behold, as everyone got into the spirit of the occasion and celebrated with much gusto.
