The Film and Theatre Club of Assumption College had a vibrant and fulfilling year as the students of the college enthusiastically took part in the various activities. The club serves as a platform to explore the theatrical skills of the students. Classic movies from across the globe were screened at the language lab of the college to familiarise the multifaceted aspects of movie-making. Thus the club aims to enhance the histrionic aptitude of the students by broadening their knowledge in drama, cinema, and film criticism. Several departments and the students’ union of the college came up with flash mobs to commemorate important days of importance and to promote the respective departmental events and fests.
