London based a South Indian Film Academy has organised a short film competition, that purely purely focuses on new generation of visual creators & young talented film makers with exceptional narrative skills - to provide a platform to exhibit their work for international audience.

Regional films in India are a prime example of its diversity as a nation. Each regional film industry upholds the evolution of the present generation without compromising on its traditional and cultural values. 

Speaking about the upcoming awards, which will announce three winners as well as showcase the films in a London venue, Dr Revathi Rangaswamy told Asian Voice, “The short film competition will be the centre stage to showcase our South Indian regional cinema including feature films, short films, documentaries, web series etc together with networking & film marketing opportunities to the film makers. Our ultimate goal is to give global visibility & applause to our South Indian regional films that they truly deserve.”

The award function is going to be held on April 14th, 2019 in London and the organisers are looking for sponsors and supporters to make it a great success.
