Filmit India Film Festival for school students is back!

INTACH’s short film initiative for school students teaches children to make short films on the environment, culture and heritage

The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) holds a short films contest, the Filmit India Film Festival, for school students every year, in which children have to make films on India’s culture and heritage. In February 2013, the winners of last year’s competition were declared. INTACH has now begun training sessions in schools for the 2014 film festival, in collaboration with an expert from the United Kingdom.

A small workshop was held at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Byculla, Mumbai on August 27 were students were taught basics of shooting, planning, scripting and production.

What makes the Filmit festival special this year?

It’s the inclusion of a local municipal school – the West Byculla Marathi Secondary School – for the first time. Another educational institution added this year is the Arya Vidya Mandir, Juhu. Video cameras will be gifted to the new schools and further training shall be provided to teachers and students in production and editing.

Filmit, a project of the INTACH and the Helen Hamlyn Trust (UK), encourages students of the sixth and seventh grades to shoot short films based on the environment, culture and heritage, with a touch of humour where and when appropriate. These films are uploaded on the Filmit website where participating schools from the UK can view them. Each Indian school has a partner school in the UK. The best short films are awarded each year.

All the best to the children!
