This time director Gautham Vasudev Menon judged the short films. ‘Reels of Fire' was definitely a never-before platform for those who wished to make it big in the field of cinematography. Virtual Movie Bazaar was another event that was unique! A Tamizh pattimandram, organised by ‘Saral' the Tamil club, set the floor to discuss current topics along with veteran speaker, Gnanasambandam. Earlier television star Solomon Papaiya, inaugurated the club. Adi Thamizhar Kalai Kuzhu, a team from Chennai Sangamam, added colour by performing eight forms of folk dance.
