Inventure Academy makes Best Film at BICFF
The competition titled `Make a film in 48 hours’ was organized by Ryan International School, Kundalahali and was open for around 20 schools in the city. The topic for the film revolved around Action for Green- with an aim of younger generation understanding the emission of green house gases, the main cause for global warming and there were 17 films which competed for the award.
Parthiv Shah and Akshay Bhamidipati who represented Inventure Academy, made a short documentary on `Life with Oxygen Masks’. `` There were four topics to choose from and we chose this as it seemed most challenging to us,” says Parthiv, a student of Grade 8 of Inventure Academy, who is all smiles after hearing the news.
The film is around 5 minute long and begins with showing life in 2020 where kids are leading a life with oxygen masks. In the flashback, we are shown the damage that vehicular pollution and industrial waste has already done to our environment.
``Message of our movie was to stop wasting more time in bringing about the `Change’ we so often talk about, and instead mobilize each other to working towards green world. Or else we have to be ready for our future generations to survive only with help of oxygen masks,’’ states Akshay, also a student of Grade 8 at Inventure Academy.
Inventure Academy, Head of School, Nooraine Fazal, says, ``I am delighted that the Inventurers took the opportunity provided by the Bangalore International Children Film Festival to develop and showcase their learning as movie makers and environmentalists.’’
``The win, is of course icing on the cake! Where our students had no specific preparation for the event, Inventure Academy in partnership with our parent body provides a very nurturing environment for students to identify, and develop their talents, and pursue excellence in their chosen fields,’’ she adds.
