DIFF Film Fellows Programme 2017

Film Fellows Programme 2017.

Results to be announced soon!

Submissions to the Film Fellows Programme 2017 are now closed.

Feature filmmaker Shubhashish Bhutiani; Bina Paul, Film Editor and Artistic Director of the International Film Festival of Kerala; and Tibetan – American documentary filmmaker, Tenzin Tsetan Choklay are now reviewing our applications. The list of selected fellows will be announced soon.

This initiative aims to encourage and develop filmmaking talent in the Himalayan regions of India by inviting five young up-and-coming filmmakers to attend DIFF and participate in events including screenings of the best of contemporary independent cinema, and masterclasses and workshops conducted by industry professionals, with whom they will also have the opportunity to engage in one-to-one mentorship sessions.

Each applicant must send a completed application form and a link to a short film she or he has directed, and be available to attend the entire fellowship programme in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. Five winning filmmakers will then be selected and provided with travel to and from, and food and lodging, during the programme.
