"We have created an atmosphere where we can show the students good films and they can have exposure to different kind of culture. If we are showing them international films, they will get to know about the different cultures of different countries, and likewise, regional films will give them a good exposure of the culture of different states," said Bobita Sharma, Chairman, Assam State Film Finance Development Corporation

Assamese actors Jerifa Wahid and Kapil Bora raised the spirit of students with their presence.
