The Indian Army is organizing its first-ever short film Dil Mange More festival in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and Ladakh to encourage the youth of the region to take up filmmaking as a profession. The festival, which will be held from September 28 to 30, will be open to all aspiring filmmakers from the two union territories.
The aim of the festival is to provide a platform for the youth of J&K and Ladakh to showcase their talent and to encourage them to pursue filmmaking as a career option. It is also an opportunity for the army to connect with the youth of the region and to understand their aspirations.
The festival will have two competition categories – one for short fiction films and the other for documentaries. The films should be of 10 minutes duration or less and should be in any of the local languages of J&K or Ladakh.
The jury for the festival will be headed by noted filmmaker Imtiaz Ali and will include other eminent personalities from the film industry. The winners will be awarded cash prizes of Rs 1 lakh each.
The Indian Army has always been at the forefront of promoting and nurturing talent in the region. This festival is yet another initiative in that direction and we are sure that it will go a long way in promoting filmmaking as a viable career option for the youth of J&K and Ladakh.
