Creative Process- conceptualizing to execution, topics falling under the creative areas including writing and direction like how to conceptualize a web series, art of storyboarding for films & television etc.
Interactive Media & convergence with Entertainment- synergy between interactive media (like video sharing platforms-Youtube/Vimeo/Dailymotion etc) with cinema/music/T.V etc
Miscellaneous-anything connected to Cinema and/or Interactive Media which does not fall under points 1, 2 &3.categories for example-film criticism,future of interactive media,adaptation of books and plays into films etc., censorship in cinema, how to make you app stand out amidst the clutter,how can podcasting serve as means of promoting a brand/movie etc.
