Mumbai International Short film festival


A film is the screen where a team, a team creating a story, building it up, manufacturing and packing it up with the final touch-up comes out alive. Story which becomes, first a set of frames, and then gradually into a film stock and later into our very portable CDs and DVDs and lastly called as ‘the movie’ is the breakthrough from reality to a place of absolute imagination. The movie of a traditional 2 hours is the big picture, but the birth of it comes through ‘Short films’.
