Asia’s largest short film club launched in city
Asia’s largest short film club ‘Shamiana’ was launched in Guwahati with its first screening at Terra Mayaa in GS Road.
The first screening marked the way for monthly screening of award winning short films from across the globe and also giving a platform for young short filmmakers from the region to display or premier their work. The next screening will be on April 20, 2013.
The main focus for launching the short film club is to create an environment where likeminded people can come every month, enjoy good cinema and discuss anything about films they like. The idea is to promote and build a positive atmosphere about cinema, most importantly to give an alternative form of entertainment to people.
The first screening of the club showcased two Oscar Nominated Short Film like Kinematograph from Poland (2010 Oscar Nominee) and The Road Home from London (2011 Oscar Nominee). Other films screened were Quiet Sign of Love from Australia, How to Mess up in Love from India, My Last Photograph from India and Bhibranta Electron by young Assamese director Deepjyoti Handique.
Shamiana is presented by Terra Mayaa, brought to you by Guwahati based Creovaent Productions, who is also promoting short films in the region with their annual property Guwahati International Short Film Festival (GISFF) and the event is promoted by Klasse Marketing Solutions
