Srinagar: A film on global warming produced by the Educational Multimedia Research Centre (EMMRC) of the Kashmir University has been awarded the best educational video of the year by New Delhi-based Consortium of Educational Communication. The film, Global warming - a catastrophe in making, along with the EMMRC Kolkata film, Sound and Images, won the national-level competition organised in Delhi this month. Produced and directed by Shahid Rasool and Shafqat Habib, the film deals with the impact of global warming in Kashmir and the challenges ahead. The film, shot at places such as Zanskar and Kolai Glacier, traces the visible impact of global warming and its effect on livelihood. “The idea was to create awareness and educate people about global warming. The film was well received and generated debate about this important issue whenever it was screened during the last year,” said the director of EMMRC, Shahid Rasool. Vice-Chancellor Prof Riyaz Punjabi said, “This award makes it clear once again that we have creative young minds in our university who can rise to the occasion in changing global competitive context and make a difference.”
