Montage Short Film Festival 2018 (Short Cuts)

Montage’18 has a new segment this year exclusively for the children film makers. Short Cuts: Celebrating children shots is an open film making platform for school children below the age group of 15 years (up to class X). It’s an initiative to expose young minds to the world of film making for a new experience and development. It is important to expose kids to new experiences for their development. Participating in this event may fortify creativity in children and inspire them to learn new ideas on visual story-telling. We strongly believe that film as an art form would widen their cultural knowledge and help them understand universal human values. The participatory nature of the festival would also then foster an attitude of collective learning and idea sharing.
