HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Short Film Festival (HSFF) is back again and this time, with an extended deadline. The last date for submissions for all three categories - fiction, non-Fiction and animated films - have been extended to March 5, 2012 till 6:30 pm, from the previous deadline of February 29. The HSFF screenings will be conducted on March 17 and 18 at Prasad Labs Preview Theatre.

A platform for filmmakers to explore the genre, the festival attracts both amateurs and talented filmmakers looking for a break in commercial cinema.

“So far we have received 100 and odd entries mostly from the state. We have extended the deadline and 50 films will be selected out of the entries for screening during the festival,” says chief coordinator of HSFF, M Sree Chaitanya. All entries are required to conform to a maximum length of 20 minutes.

The jury will institute awards in eight categories from the final selection. The winner in the best film category of HSFF in 2010 ‘Advaitham’ won the best educational film at the National Film Festival 2011.

“One of the directors, D Vamshi Krishna also received an offer from noted producer Dil Raju who noticed his work at HSFF. It is a space to launch talented directors,” says the chief coordinator.

More details regarding the festival can be obtained from the HSFF website: www.hsff.in and www.cinebees.com.
