About the Topic:  

18 is a monumental age that represents the transformation and first steps into adulthood. 18 is a year that teenagers anticipate and one that adults recall nostalgically. Its an odd age as one part of you is still a child, naïve and hopeful and in another is a mature and wise youth welcoming themselves into a new world.


The winning film will be judged by a panel of 3 eminent judges and the winner will be declared on the 29th of January.

Our Film Online Distribution Partner “Pockets Films” will feature selected films on their online channel (subject to basic distribution terms and conditions).

3 winners will be provided a special Filmmaking Workshop by our mentor Ms Oorvazi Irani and the first prize will be provided additional special mentoring sessions to make their next short film.

Here’s what Oorvazi Irani has to say regarding the contest “I feel the age group of filmmakers 14-19 is largely neglected and is in need of a special kind of mentoring and being a filmmaker and film educationalist I am very happy to head this initiative to nurture young talent”.
