This is my third year as an organiser in Team Impressions and i am very glad to be a part of this longest running media festival. It has helped me groom my personality on a holistic manner. I used to be a shy person in my first year and my stint as an organizer with Team Impressions has helped me to co-ordinate with media professionals and honed my fest management capabilities. It has also inculcated a deep sense of professionalism in me and enhanced my knowledge of media,” Stated Sanatan Chaudhari, TYBMM student, VES

The festival has been conceptualized as a podium to spot, hone and nurture the next-gen media professional from among the vast talent pool of students present with the help of luminaries like Bharat Sinha from Phantom Films who will be a key presence at the fest.
