The Satrangi 7 Colors Film Festival 2016 came to a close on 28 May at a swanky culturally-enriched ceremony at the RMIT Bldg 80 in Melbourne, with more than a dozen guest speakers, special guests, media personalities, political representatives and film and television personalities in attendance.

The theme of the event was to showcase the “Significance of Cultural Diversity in Media and Identity issues” in Australia and it came through effectively in the film screenings, workshops and conferences that were organised (www.skga.org.auwww.nmfi.com.au for more details).

The aim behind Satrangi, a festival of performing and creative arts from various cultures, is to discuss Australian media related history, the present and past, but most importantly find solutions to support the Australian and Victorian Government initiatives to promote multiculturalism, with community involvement and participation at all levels.

MC Nesan Naidoo conducted the cultural diversity and identity workshop with various guest speakers, who included filmmaker and lecturer at Deakin University John Cumming, media and communications lecturer at RMIT Dr Vikrant Kishore, and Principal Solicitor-Victorian Government & Victorian Convenor of the Asian Australian Alliance Molina Asthana.
