Short Film Section of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne has a new member!!
Actress Richa Chadha is no stranger to the jury of the famous film festival. After the incredible success of the Melbourne Virtual Indian Film Festival in 2020, she will soon become a member of the jury of one of the largest Indian film festivals in the world. IFFM is gearing to host both online and in cinemas next month. The 12th festival of this prestigious festival was held in theaters from August 12th to 21st, and online from August 15th to 30th in Australia. The door to IFFM registration. Short film competition. The jury for this year’s short film competition includes producer, actress, and activist Richa Chadha, and national award-winning director Onir.
The theme of this year’s short film competition is contemporary slavery and equality. Since its establishment, IFFM has been committed to promoting the principles of equality, freedom, and tolerance. These are the principles of the modern world. Previous winners from India include successful directors such as Colin D’kuna (Dostana 2), Varun Sharma (Bunty Aur Babli 2), and Manj Mahijaa (Figure Skating Girl).
Richa Chadha said of the jury membership: “Being a part of IFFM Short Film Festival 2021 as a jury member is an incredible feeling. To be back here again, but as a judge, this time is very exciting. We are sure to expect some astounding short films on the theme of modern slavery and equality, both of which are complex subjects. Also, speaking from experience, I am aware of how difficult it is to tell an entire story within a short amount of time, that too on such an important theme so I’m really looking forward to all the short film entries this year.”
IFFM Film Festival director Mitu Bhovmik Lange said: “We are more than thrilled to have Onir and Richa Chadha be the jury for this year’s Short Film Competition at the IFFM. They are exactly the kind of judges who not only inspire others but have a huge body of supreme work to represent their expertise and flair in their respective fields and we are honored to have them as our esteemed judges at the 2021 festival.”
