The competition was a grand success in that it brought together young, creative and highly passionate filmmakers from countries like Nepal, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Iran, in which our communities have been subject to compulsory detentions, capital punishment and violence as a result of the so-called war on drugs.
Out of all the 15 applications and concept notes, 11 had been shortlisted and invited to submit their full script. Upon scripts finalization, each filmmaker signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ANPUD. Each filmmakers received USD 250 as an assistance fund to support the development of all the short films. On 14 January 2019, we released 11 short films on ANPUD’s YouTube channel and widely shared via all the social media platforms. If you have not already watched our short films.
All the short films underwent both quantitative (scoring) and qualitative (observation/impression) evaluations conducted by our Jury in the light of 7 pre-defined criteria covering various aspects of a film making process as well as competition guidelines.
