Filmmaking

Teams will be given two months to create films on the community initiatives run by NGOs and Corporates. Each team will attempt at documenting impact brought by the interventions.

Even though the films produced will be vastly different from each other, the underlying leitmotif is an effort to articulate filmmakers’ tryst with socio-economic issues either directly or tangentially. Each film will explore different elements– whether social, economic or cultural.
