The films that will be accepted in the festival will be films shot on the Digital format as it is the format that encourages and helms new thought and styles of filmmaking. Added to that, it can be very inexpensive and at the same time it can deliver comparable quality to conventional formats. This format has brought in a new visual language to the world of moving images. The festival will see awards in various genres of feature films, short films, animation, documentaries and student films. And if this isn't exhilarating enough, there will also be a competition for digital art. Two more exciting competitions, 'Films shot on mobile phones' and 'Film in one week' will be held during the duration of the festival capturing the spirit and essence of digital filmmaking.
