They don't have money to make it happen, but they are here because they believe in what they want to do enough that they believe they can make...

Deaf Sounds

Director: Gheorghe Andrei.
The sounds that a boy and a girl make just by sitting on a bench are combined into a song that reveals a certain thing … they fall in love.

Classical Monologue of A Director

Director: Pradeep Kumar N .
The short film is an anthology of a director’s monologue that describes his various anxieties. The director fumbles upon the different dilemmas that affect his cameraman and editor. The editor undergoes a weird world of imaginations while being in front of the editing table. The abundance of visuals with no meaning help grow depression in his mind. Always seeking a comfort caress all around, he finds the warmth of safety in the presence of director. The problem that surrounds the cameraman is of another kind. The voyeuristic nature from the childhood moulds the cameraman within him in future. The same problem shatters his personal relationships as well. The short film end in a spot where the problems of these two come to exemplify the malice. The malice that prevail in the today media scenario.
