On March 9, as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) an event titled ‘Meraki-The Celebration of Womanhood’ was organized on the occasion of International Women’s Day. It was organized online by Team Frames in collaboration with IQAC and Women’s Development Cell of the institution. The guests of honor for the event were: Ms. Amber Qureshi, a former plus-size model, and owner of The Plum Tree, Ms. Avantika Mathur an artist and owner of Tribe Art Vibe and Womenpow, Ms. Payal Soni, a plus-size model and body activist, founder and managing director of Sizaya, and actor in MTV India.

Keeping the idea of womanhood prevalent, this year the festival is paying tribute to the women of cinema who have made a tremendous impact with their work, both on-screen and behind the camera with the theme: ‘Kriti- A Work of Art’ with ‘Kri’ depicting the creation and ‘Ti’ depicting the women of cinema.

Although the fest is being conducted online this year, Frames is just as driven and committed as it was in the past in providing a spotlight for filmmakers to share their unique artistry and vision.
