To give an impetus to short movies and highlight the creativity of young filmmakers, the Kala Ghoda Short Film Festival (KGSFF) will be held under the aegis of the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival here.

Entries have been called for participation in KGSFF being held in association with Pocket Films. The entries can be be submitted online tillJan 7 for the fest, which will be held next year. 

Apart from young names, the festival will also see films by established filmmakers.

“Our association with Kala Ghoda Short Film Festival, perfectly aligns with our objective to carve out a niche and create a sought after platform for short film makers and provide them with the exposure, encouragement and appreciation they deserve,” Saameer Mody, managing director, Pocket Films, said in a statement. 

For the fest, films are invited under two categories. The first category reasonates with the current sentiment and cleanliness regime in the country, titled “Swachh Bharat” while the second category will have films on various other issues.

Pocket Films has added another aspect to encourage the young talent by offering them two types of submission options.

The participants can either choose to submit entries in the short film contest alone or they can opt for a “contest + distribution” category where contesting films also stand a chance to avail additional benefits such as distribution of their film to the worldwide audience through Pocket Films.
