A college in Shillong, Meghalaya stopped a documentary film from being screened at its ongoing film festival alleging it contained content for Maoist propaganda. The film titled Red Ant Dream, though, was shown to select audience in another institute.

East Khasi Hills superintendent of police M Kharkrang denied banning of the film at Indie8, the first short film festival showcasing the works of filmmakers across northeast.

Shillong-based Tarun Bhartiya, editor and co-writer of the film said the police did not give any reasons for seeking to vet the film.
