The Rolling Frames International Short Film Festival offers a perfect platform to filmmakers for showcasing their talent and screening their Short Films & Documentaries to the industry and general public.
A unique platform for filmmakers to screen their Short Films & Documentaries. This is a unique opportunity to showcase their talent to the industry professionals and also the general public. Past events have seen over 700 filmmakers from 59 different countries presented their films. Brilliant films like Sulle Sathya, Lest We Forget, Chasing the Rainbow, Lost Paradise, Scarred, Dreams UnDwarfed are showcased in the Summit.

In its third year, we expect The Rolling Frames International Short Film Festival experience to be even more vibrant and interactive for the viewers and participants alike, with plethora of subjects and styles projected from filmmakers in India and abroad.
As the festival comes into its own, there are sure to be exciting entries and interactions between homegrown and international talent.

After the screenings, there will be opportunities to interact with the Director of the film in the exclusive and dedicated space, the ‘Director’s Corner’. This has proven to be a hit in the past festivals, and we are sure it will live up to expectations this year, too.
