DIFF Film Fellows Initiative Launched

‘Lighthouse’ is the special blog section which features reports for the press, significant announcements, details of the films that we are to play and other technical information about the festival – essentially, the ‘space to watch’

The 3rd edition of the Dharamshala International Film Festival (DIFF) is very excited to announce the launch of the DIFF Film Fellows initiative.

As part of DIFF’s vision to promote independent filmmaking in the Himalayan regions, the first DIFF Film Fellows programme is targeted specifically at young up-and-coming filmmakers from the Indian Himalayan regions.

As part of the programme five filmmakers will be selected to attend DIFF 2014 and participate in its various events, including screenings of the best of contemporary independent cinema, masterclasses and workshops held by visiting filmmakers and industry professionals. The selected participants will also have the opportunity to engage in special one-on-one mentorship sessions with visiting filmmakers.The programme will cover train fare, food and lodging for the selected participants for the duration of the festival.

DIFF Film Fellows is open to filmmakers from the following regions: Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, and the hill regions of West Bengal and Assam.

The deadline for applying to the programme is 31 August 2014.
