What is Directors’ Short?
Arvind Babbal Productions Pvt. Ltd. has been created with the sole aim of creating quality content, and we believe top quality human resource is the foremost requirement for that.
In a unique initiative to find the creative people who have jumped into the fray with nothing but a dream in their pocket, Arvind Babbal Productions Pvt. Ltd. is inviting short films that will showcase your talent.
You can be anybody – a director, an assistant director, editor, cinematographer, script writer, art director, lyricist... all we need is a short film not longer than 15 minutes in any genre from you.
Our esteemed jury will go through the films in every six months and choose a winner. He will have a handsome reward. In addition to that top three films will be hosted in a well publicised popular Short Film website.
Also the directors of top five Shorts will make it to the database of Arvind Babbal Productions Pvt. Ltd., and will be hired as assistant directors by the organisation as and when required!
