The University Film Club was established in the year 1974. Prof M Jalal A Khan of Zakir Hussain College of Engineering took special interest in taking up the difficult task to establish film club in the Kennedy House. With painstaking efforts, he had fabricated the moving giant cinema screen, which was lying in the basement of Kennedy Auditorium. Two 35mm RCA Projectors were there to screen film strips movies in the Kennedy Auditorium. Since its inception the Film Club has been serving as a platform, which provides the students of the University, the opportunity to explore the creative world of cinema.
