About FIlmfare short film awards

Filmfare Short Film Festival aims to boost the efforts of the young filmmakers interested in exploring the short film space. The section will showcase short films (of 20 mins or less duration) made by aspiring as well as established filmmakers.


Size doesn't matter when it comes to entertainment. Short films were once the staple of the festival circuit but have currently caught the imagination of the common man in a big way. Thanks to the category's booming popularity, all kinds of filmmakers, ranging from first-timers shooting with their smartphones to established auteurs wanting to try a new thing have jumped on-board the short film bandwagon in a big way. Filmfare, which has always been on the forefront in spotting the latest trends and talent, has decided to start a digital short film festival primarily aimed at first timers.

The format is simple. Shoot your film, send it to us, be judged by an illustrious jury comprising Karan Johar, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, Kabir Khan, Vikramaditya Motwane, Nikhil Advani, Onir and Shakun Batra and go home with a Black Lady if you are chosen as the lucky winner. Get started!
