Baramulla's GDC Boys Host Media Festival

Baramulla, September 20: On Wednesday, the Government Degree College (GDC) Boys Baramulla organised its 5th annual media festival, providing a dynamic venue for students from a wide range of educational institutions to exhibit their artistic prowess.

The event was put on by the college’s media studies department.


Many local educational institutions took part in the celebration, including the Central University of Kashmir (CUK), the Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST), the Government College for Women on MA Road, the Government Degree College in Nawa Kadal, and the Amar Singh College in Srinagar. The event focused on a stunning collection of student-created short films, documentaries, pictures, and photo stories.

A powerful short film on child labour was shown during the festival, and it was a major highlight. This heartfelt article illuminated the plight of young workers and highlighted the critical need for government measures to enrol these kids in school and provide a better future for them.

Students showed films and performed a play that explored the pervasive problem of the modern caste and class system and sought to educate the audience about the harm caused by such biases.

The newsroom at GDC Baramulla’s media department was also opened up to the public for the first time, earning kudos for its commitment to journalistic standards.

A skit was performed to stress the importance of media in modern society, as well as the ethical obligations of journalists. The significance of material shared on social media was highlighted, encouraging introspection about the power of the internet.

Prof. Mohammad Farooq Rather, principal of GDC Boys Baramulla, spoke at the event and emphasised the need for honesty and integrity in the media. He stressed the need of journalists checking facts and doing research before reporting them.

The event was enriched by the participation of Aijaz-Ul-Haque and Tariq Abdullah, two producers from EMMRC Kashmir University.

Prof. Tariq Ahmad Chalkoo, the Staff Secretary of GDC Baramulla, gave a vote of appreciation at the end of the event, thanking the attendees, speakers, and organisers for their hard work in making the media festival a huge success.
