Riwayaat (Short Film Competition)

Are you a storyteller? Do you visualize in frames? Is being in front of the camera or behind the camera your soft spot? If you have the knack for looking at things from different angles, literally different angles; if you believe that films are the summation of personal yet collaborative journeys, and they seep into the viewers' minds and find a nook for themselves, you are at the right place.

We, at Passion’20, provide you a platform for short films and stand by those who are passionate about film making. We encourage the talents and works of those who are zealous to showcase their films to an audience.

Now is the time to showcase your abilities and acknowledge the brilliance in you.

Come join us! Lights, Camera, and Action!
