A view of the college.

Films never cease to interest one. It has become a part and parcel of the Indian culture. The young especially are hooked onto the movies.Keeping this is mind, St Joseph’s Evening College has started a Film Club.  This club is the newest addition to their other clubs which include sports, painting and music. The Club hopes to popularise and screen some of the best movies. It aims to foster a culture of film viewing, understanding film-making and the aesthetics that go into it.

Documentaries made on socially relevant themes are what is popular with the students. The club also encourages the students to make their own documentaries and the same is shown to the rest of the students. The club also puts together seminars and workshops on films where well-known speakers are invited to speak on topics relevant to the industry.

The membership to the club seems to get bulkier by the day for it is popular with the students.  Anil Supreeth, a final year student of Commerce says that he is proud to be associated with the club, “Movies motivate one and also influence one’s thinking to a great extent. It cultivates a feeling of oneness among the members. And when you sit down to watch a movie with your friends it makes it all the more enjoyable,” he signs off.
