Inaugurating the festival, renowned film editor B Lenin said, “It’s good to see many youngsters showing interest in making short films to convey some message. At the same time, young short filmmakers must keep in mind that stories alone cannot bring out  a good film. Sounds are very important.”  During the festival, awards were presented to films under the categories of best three films, best cinematography and best creative entry.  Fr Xavier Antony, Head of the Department of Visual Communication, Xaviers College, Palayamkottai, award winning film-maker Srikanthan, film editor Antony L Ruban and Vijaya Raghavan, Regional Deputy Director, Song and Drama division, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, also participated.
