Projekt is the film and photography society of LSR.It has been a constant endeavour of the society to learn, understand, and express through the means of film and photography. We attempt to constantly engage with society, which is manifested and reflected in our work. Through technique, emotion, and aesthetic, we aim to provide a new perspective to all that is familiar and create new realities. Through exhibitions, workshops and screenings, and simply getting together and thinking, we attempt to provide our insights and contributions to the ever-evolving arena of art, and make it as democratic a space as possible. As a part of the LSR annual festival, Tarang, we host a photography exhibition giving students a platform to display their creativity and we also organise several film and documentary screenings, national and international.

Projekt, the film and photography society, has had an extremely exciting run this academic year. It was successful in its attempt to create a more interactive and inclusive space, for non-members as well, organising its first photo series titled ‘Musafir’ to provide everyone a platform to showcase their travel photographs.
The year also saw the launch of a new programme - ‘Projekt Wednesdays’ which initiated short film screenings every Wednesday to inculcate a culture of short film viewing and appreciation in the college. The society also organised a photography workshop with the skilled photography Mr. Nimit Nigam. The workshop focused on clarifying the basics and was open to non society members as well.The society also put up a teachers’ day themed exhibition titled ‘O, Captain My Captain’ as a tribute to all the teachers.
Tarang was an eventful fest for the society. Pre Tarang event ‘Hocus Pocus’ included a trailer making competition, a mobile photography competition as well as caption writing. The Tarang line up of events: on spot photography competitions, silent filmmaking and screenplay writing, were received with great enthusiasm.
The year concluded with an exhibition around the theme of nature in college put up for the green cup inspection.
