Ryan's IAFA was conceptualised and started in 2008. Thanks to the vision of Chairman Dr. Augustine Francis Pinto and under the guidance of M D Madam Grace Pinto - IAFA is a platform where students from the age of 11 to the age of 21 years can express their ideas, thoughts, views in a very special way by making a one minute Ad film.
By conducting the Ad film contest, we at Ryan TV provide the young talents who are interested in film making a platform to showcase their ideas and creativity at a young age. Through this initiative, children voice their opinions about society by using the media as a very effective tool.
Every year the award function is conducted and the renowned Jury of IAFA comprising of eminent personalities from the film industry as well as corporate world, judge the ads and declare the winners, along with the YJ Children's Jury, the selection of the winners has become a very exciting process indeed. YJ Children's Jury awards are presented by young Ryanites from all over the country. It is always interesting to see how the thought process of the students is similar to or different from the adult Jury.
IAFA is a huge success thanks to our well wishers and sponsors.
How Students participate?
Every year Ryan TV announces the registration for IAFA. Students have to login www.iceplex.tv to register.
Login to www.iceplex.tv and go to register page and fill the details with the category and age group chosen. Then use the email as your login ID and put the password which you have given to login. You will get a registration code once you register. This code is very important since you will have to write the code on the CD/DVD which you will be couriering to Ryan TV in which the Ad film of yours will be there. The code is so important because it is the only identification of yours. If you do not write the code, the CD/DVD is invalid. Because we will not be able to find whose CD/DVD it is.
After receiving your Ad Ryan TV will check all the CD/DVD and finalize the Ad films for nomination.
Once the finalisation is done the Jury declares the winners on the basis of supporting data. The awards are given to students in grand function anchored by celebraties and eminent personalities as guests.
How to make an Ad?
According to your category chosen take a good subject and shoot your Ad film with any kind of video camera (mobile, Handy cam, professional video camera). You can be the director/ producer of your Ad and use your friends to act in the Ad film. Once done record your Ad film on to a CD/DVD and send to Ryan TV with the CODE written on CD/DVD.
