Frames Film Festival’s Initiative to discard the D-I-S in Disability
Frames Film Festival is the annual departmental fest initiated by the Mass Media Dept. of SIES (Nerul) College of Arts, Science and Commerce.
On 3rd December the team of Frames film festival paid a visit to the ETC Centre for Disability as a Corporate Social Responsibility event. The event commenced with a welcome ceremony by the visually impaired children of the Centre as they played instruments and sang songs much to the delight of everyone present. The volunteers of Frames were seen supporting a silent rally with a charged positive spirit in support of inclusivity of differently able children.
The fun-filled activities for the day started with an entertaining animated movie session for the deaf and mute children. Four different types of genres were shown to the kids, which gave out certain moral messages too. Another section of the kids played their heart out to the outdoor games with cricket, badminton and football. The visually impaired group of students were introduced to instruments and enjoyed a music session with the team of Frames. The volunteers had a marvellous time interacting with the minors. Intellectually disabled children were handed with paints and colors to reveal their inner artist.
The volunteers of Frames Film Festival arranged for a large banner on which all the kids gleefully left their palm imprints. And last but not the least, the students and the entire Team of Frames shook a leg to the beats of iconic numbers. The event was successful as it was initiated with a cause and ended on a strong note that disability shouldn’t be an obstacle rather an expression of ability in diversity.
