This short film festival results were supposed to be published by yesterday or today, but still no updates about it . According to a newspaper article Over 4,000 entries were received by the National Film Development Council (NFDC) for the 'Swachh Bharat' short film festival and top 10 filmmakers were supposed to get cash awards. To be precise total entries were 4346. Website of NFDC declared that they will notify filmmakers by last week of September 2016 and will likely announce their winners by 1st October 2016. But no updates till now. Some rumors are being spread that because of the terrorist attacks this short film festival stands cancelled. For more information one can visit the NFDC's official website.
Some of the news channels on TV broadcast the winners of Swachh Bharat Short Film Festival, organised by NFDC. Some daily newspapers at Delhi also published the names of winners of the said competition. According to a News paper a filmmaker Katyayan Shivpuri from Maharastra won the first prize a sum of Rs. 10,00000/-, for his creation "Murga". For the second prize 3 winners were selected, Shudhanshu Shrama, KVK Kumar and Akshay Danavale for their films Nanha Doot, Chembuku Moodindi and Sarkarmi Rati Wadho respectively. The prize money for second position was Rs. 600000/- each. Six more entries were awarded the third prize.
It is surprising that news channels and papers are declaring the results but the official website of NFDC has nothing to show in this regard. Even participants also did't receive any mail regarding selection or rejection of their entries.
Finally the results were published on the website of nfdc http://www.nfdcindia.com/sbsff/. As said earlier winners were announced. Today 10.09.2016 there was a function named "Swachhagraha" at Cyber City Convention Center , Off Hitex road , Kondapur, Hyderabad, Telangana. The participants of SBSFF and many dignities were invited to this program, where screening of all winner movies were done. Sri Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister for urban development and info and broadcasting and Sri K T Rama Rao, Minister for IT &municipal administration were the main faces of this program.
The screening of these movies will be done in other parts of the country too.
I participated in this competition but still I didn't get any mail about selection or rejection of my short film. What is the final result?
