MCE Society’s PAI College of Visual Effects, Design & Art (VEDA) is a premier college of higher education in the field of animation and design, which provides university-approved courses in digital media and arts like graphics design, web design, classical animation & visual effects. The college seeks to make an Artistic India through Digital
The college has grown from strength to strength since its inception, both in terms of a number of students and quality of academic output. In 2015, it became an ISO 9001-2008 accredited institute. More recently, India’s leading educational magazine The Knowledge Review rated the college as the Best Vocational Institute of India in Media and Animation category!
Kalotsav is the annual festival of PAI College of VEDA. The spirit of Kalotsav is to showcase the quality works of VEDA students as well as to celebrate the contribution of professionals in the field of animation and design. This is done as a conscious effort to help shape and nurture national talent in order to take it to newer heights. Kalotsav serves as a vibrant platform for fostering an association between students and industry experts.
As a special programme, this year the Kalotsav Fest will host a series of interactions of experts from industry with students. This program is called Coffee With College. Here representatives from the industry will discuss with students the most important features and trends of the animation and design market and also see the works of students. The idea is to bridge the gap between academics and the industry.
In another key initiative this year, the college has proudly introduced the Golden Pixel Awards for working professionals. These awards are designed to acknowledge and commemorate the outstandingly creative talent we have in the Indian industry in fields such as Graphics Design, Web Design, Film Crafts, Animation, VFX and Gaming. The awards ceremony will also be held as a part of Kalotsav 2018-19 in Pune, a known seat of Education, Dedication and Knowledge.
It’s Kalotsav! Time to celebrate art, design & technology!
