IIM Rohtak is going to add another feather to its cap by organising the first Film Summit on 31st July 2016. This Summit will be a redefining trend in the culture of B-Schools as it will be the first of its kind to be held in any B-School in India.
“From the exuberant masala fare to the heart touching and realistic storylines having subtle layers of social annotations, the grandeur of creativity is whistling globally. Movies have a universal appeal and the potential to expand this reach is very high with respect to Indian Film Industry. As such, the upcoming event with the theme of “Making India a global entertainment superpower” has already won a special place in the calendar and in the hearts of the prospective audience,” said a press release from the Institute.
“Baccha kabil bano, kabil... kamiyabi to jhak maar kar peeche bhagegi.” Remember how a dialogue swayed the hearts of most of us by showcasing the cynical, the soulful and even the heart-rending events of ordinary life! We are a country that celebrates cinema like a religion. The Indian media and entertainment market are poised to grow at a rate of 13.9 percent, a rate that is almost double of that of the global M&E industry. When art collaborates with adroit business modeling, the impact is definitely going to be instrumental.
