#CW - Cinema of the World is a quarterly film event of short films.

#CW is the first festival which is specifically created to help independent filmmakers to raise their awareness about the kinds of films made in the world.

Filmmakers competing in festivals are not bound to any condition which requires them not to show their films anywhere else. Rather awarded films will be given priority over others as it being the purpose of our festival to educate through the best. Still, all decisions will be taken by the jury and they will decide which films to grant submission for the festival.

Submit your film to #CW and become mentor to many.
