An electronics company launched its latest 3D technology in Mumbai with the announcement of a 3D short film competition for students of cinema. Filmmakers Karan Johar, Rajkumar Hirani and Nikhil Advani will be judging it, with students sending in entries from around 11 film schools, including Subhash Ghai’s Whistling Woods and NDTV Film School.
The company, Panasonic, will lend contestants the equipment and technology to make these films.
“There will be mentoring and training in the medium. We will be on the lookout for promising young talent,” says Johar.
Hirani adds, “All filmmakers love to play with new technology and this is a great opportunity for students.”
The competition will flag off in September and the winner will be announced by December.
