What started four years back as a one-of-its kind filmmaking activity to promote filmmaking in the country has now participants from as many as 18 countries.

With the aim of acknowledging the talent of aspiring filmmakers, India Film Project gives an inimitable platform to all the cinema lovers to showcase their talent globally.

Fifty hours is all a participant has to interpret the subject, write a brilliant script, discover the most appropriate location for the shoot, select a good cast for the movie, compose gripping music and submit entries.

Two of Indian cinema’s most prolific and renowned filmmakers, Ketan Mehta and Onir, are the jury members at the India Film Project 2015, scheduled to be held in Ahmedabad from September 18 -26 this year and is expecting a whopping participation of 15,000 filmmakers.

“I’m delighted to be a part of the jury at IFP. It will be a great experience to judge the upcoming talent. I think the concept is unique and I look forward to see the great work done by all the passionate movie makers in just 50 hours,” says Ketan Mehta.
