In conjunction with the 15TH Deepavali Carnival 2016 (18th -29th October), Agenda Suria Communication & TouchTronics Entertainment proudly presents AGNI SHOWDOWN 2016: Music video & short Contest.

AGNI Creative Content Workshop was initiated by Malaysian Indian Creative Content Council (MICCC) in collaboration with Special Unit Program for Socioeconomic Development of Indian Community (SEDIC) and it was endorsed by Perbadanan Kemajuan Filem Nasional Malaysia (FINAS). The sole purpose of this workshop was to empower the young Indian creative content makers to further push and equip themselves to face the challenges of global competitions.
