Genre-Wise
A Drama will compete with Drama whereas a thriller will compete with a thriller. From years of experience, we have conceived the believe that we cannot compare two different genre film. As we want to give filmmakers a fair chance to be on our film line-up we will compare our submission Genre-Wise, so if you have made a Horror film don’t worry you don’t have to fight with a musical.  

Indie-First
Just like your film, our fest is also a truly independent event. We survive through the support of the filmmakers and the film lovers. So it’s an Indie First event by the indie filmmakers for the indie filmmakers.

International Standard
We are biased towards outstanding contents. Your film will be seen five times before it made it to the official selection list. So you can flaunt your laurel like never before.
