FOC is the flagship annual cultural and academic festival of Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication.
It stands for all that the word ‘communication’ entails, and signifies all that SIMC stands for. The Co-Curricular Cell organises the annual festival of SIMC, where the best minds in the country meet and face off in an eclectic mix of formal and informal events and competitions. Over the years, Fest-O-Comm has been used as a platform, to bring together some of the most eminent professionals from the industry and the best brains from the top management schools in India and internationally, thus unleashing hidden talent.
Fest-O-Comm has been attended by many prominent guests ranging from iconic celebrities to inspiring personalities, such as Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, Mr. Salman Khan, Mr. Akshay Kumar, Mr. Aamir Khan, Mr. Harsha Bhogle, Mr. Shashi Tharoor, Mr. Shankar Mahadevan, Mr. Kapil Sibal, Mr. Anurag Kashyap, Mr. Manoj Bajpayee, Mr. Madhur Bhandarkar, Ms. Barkha Dutt, Mr. Prithviraj Chavan, Ms. Anushka Sharma and many more. We take pride in hosting movie promotions and musical events in our college.
In 2018, we hosted Mr. Akshay Kumar for movie promotion of 'Padman'.
So, here we are yet again, calling in all kinds of crazies to be a part of this cocktail of fun, frolic and business, to have an opportunity to bring out the best in you, a chance to showcase your true talent, and a platform to come out of your shell.
Let’s fantasize together, and let’s concoct our own stories in this two-day extravaganza where song and dance and poetry are just the ‘play’ part of it. But we know that all play and no work make Jack a dull boy!
So, work your minds off, to-be managers, because a celebration it might be, but dig deep, and you may just find yourself in a battleground.
