Although late in the calendar year, BCQC's formal quizzes were revived by a movie-themed quiz by Avaneendra and Rohan. The questions were dominated by Hollywood-based questions but covered world movies, Indian movies, cinema technology and terms associated with film-making.
The quiz stuck to schedule without any unwarranted delays. Team C took an early lead which they maintained till the end of the quiz. The first round by Avaneendra was not very remunerative with many questions going unanswered. The written round featured 6 questions requiring identification of cameo appearances. This round balanced scores and brought the teams lagging behind closer to others. The second IR round by Rohan had comparatively more answerable questions resulting in close competition and teams A and B finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively. 2 extra questions were added to compensate for the questions that were scrapped.
