ViBGYOR 2011: Call For Entries


Welcome to the 6th Edition of ViBGYOR International Film Festival for Short & Documentary films, to be held in Thrissur, Kerala, India from January 12-16, 2011! The 6th ViBGYOR is dedicated to the memory of late C. Saratchandran, the noted filmmaker and activist and our friend and co-traveler at ViBGYOR. Accordingly we have chosen Political Filmmaking and Media Activism in South Asia' as the special focus theme of the year. Anand Padvardhan is the festival Director for 2011 VIBGYOR.

Due to time and space constraints we can only screen around 100 films at the festival. If you or a friend wishes to send a recent film/s (Documentaries/Short Fiction/Animations/ Music Videos/Spots) to ViBGYOR, we shall gladly include them in the PREVIEW for preliminary selection. An eminent panel of Jury will select the final set of films to be screened at the Festival.

The last date for film submissions is November 15th, 2010 (postmarked).  Download Entry Forms from http://vibgyorfilm.org/2011/entryform2011.pdf Don't forget to include all required documents/material (duly filled Entry Form, Synopsis, production details, stills form the film etc) as hard copy or preferably as soft copy on a separate CD.
