Culture and Communication converge as Symbiosis Institute of Media

    and Communication brings to you Fest-O-Comm '16.


    Fest-O-Comm, the flagship event of SIMC, is the numero uno communication fest in the country, where bragging rights will be up for grabs in this epic battle of wits, creativity and talent. Since its inception in 2001, FOC has been the swan song and the grand finale of events here at SIMC.


    At FOC, every moment is action-packed in a two-day celebration

    where MBA and MAMC students synergize through seminars, film-

    making, fashion shows and a gamut of other cultural and academic




    Darwin did not get the memo. He had gotten it wrong. Evolution is not

    about survival. Not anymore it isn't. Evolution is subjective. From boom-

    boxes and Disc-mans to iPods, from jalopies to hybrids, from boot-cuts to skinny denims.


    Gone are the days when a guy could hold a boom-box high above his head and ask out the girl that gets his heart racing, by playing her favourite song. Syncing iPods or following the same artist on SoundCloud can never hold a candle to a romance that blossoms from such small but beautiful gestures. We seem to have evolved, to adapt to a world where obsolescence is an ever present threat to one's social standing.


    Media stands divided. So do we. Undeniable, however, is the fact that pop culture continues to shape the way we see the world. A boom-box today might get the romantics among us nostalgic and wistful but one must admit, those were a handful. Surely, wooing someone you care about need not involve the risk of dislocating a shoulder.


     The bottom line is, the world has changed. For better or worse? The jury is still out on that one!



    Fest-O-Comm is where the talent is. Be it sizzling the ramp with your

    walk, to painting the town red with promotions, everything is done in true SIMC style.


    Set the stage on fire with some mean dance moves, go beyond the nukkad with the street play or blaze through the case study with your brilliance. Budding filmmakers are welcome to participate in the 24 hour film-making competition, and those with a knack for talking can flaunt their skills in Just a Minute! While the Ad Gurus keep busy creating Mad Ads, the sports keedas will find solace on the cricket ground. If gaming is your calling, join right in!


    With arms wide open, we welcome you, one and all, to join us in all that has come to be known as our SIMCulture. Fest-O-Comm 2016 is a celebration of  talent, artistry and skill of proportions never before seen. Be there to witness it in its full power.

No. That's not some much coveted hill station. That's the Lavale hilltop campus. The panoramic venue for Fest-o-comm. Here we interweave the fun and frolic of the fest with the breathtaking serenity and beauty of the campus.


Quaintly referred to as 'the hill' by the students residing here, every hillwasi here can be a testament to the lush green environment and perennial pleasant weather that makes this campus a veritable heaven on earth.
