Power Brands Bollywood Award

This is rare. Bollywood recognizing and awarding a mature animated short film! Thank you Power Brands Bollywood Film Journalists awards.

When I and my wife were producing Schirkoa from our home studio we didn’t know we would be sharing the tables with Bollywood celebrities, film critics and industry giants. Getting awarded with stars and creators of last year’s critical Bollywood hits like Secret Superstar, Bareilly ki Barfi, Hindi Medium, Jagga Jasoos and more was slightly overwhelming.

The awards are the first no frills, absolutely transparent Bollywood Awards where selection has been based upon voting only by film critics and movie journalists. The exact votes of each journalist is displayed online before the event. http://powerbrands360.com/powerbrands-awards.html”

Jaipur Art Summit / Screening and Q & A

With more than a year of festival run Schirkoa has been warmly received in numerous cities of the world. But it’s always a special one when when it returns home. On 17th December at Ravindra Manch, Jaipur, Schirkoa had a long awaited screening. The friends, family members and fellow artists were treated with a warm and cozy screening on the Sunday afternoon. Our sincere thanks to all those who attended, asked questions, and praised our hard work and love that is animation.

 

Schirkoa at South East Asian Film Market

I have been steadily keeping up with the festival run of my film Schirkoa and the talks on the process. It’s been to 96 film festivals so far and still running well. The short film will be available on Vimeo on demand, Amazon on demand and iTunes next month.

I am now expanding the universe and writing a feature length version of the film. Good part : The pitch for the feature film has been selected as the finalist in the top Asian film market. Hope I get the funding and start the work on the feature length version!
