Film fests seem to be the flavour of the season this year, and after ­having taken over Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida are seem to be the next targets. While the Millennium City will see a multilingual short film fest, Abaracadbra, in April, the east will witness the Noida International Film Festival in February.

The latter, which was ­earlier known as the Miniboxoffice International Film Festival and usually screened short films, boasts of a special expansion this time with the addition of ­feature films, ­animations films, documentaries and music videos. Sheetal Shetty, one of the participating ­directors, has addressed youth issues in her ­docu-drama Happy Birthday.

“It’s about how impulsive today’s ­youngsters are — they don’t realise that the ­decisions they make about drugs and alcohol will ­influence their health and future. They are independent but are they responsible?” she asks. Other films to watch out for include Little Big George, Waapsi, Maria, Suite Ruin and Ghatothkach 2.
